IN THE CLASSROOM
This section focuses on persons with disabilities. The video and corresponding lesson plans are linked to the curriculum in the subject of Health for elementary and junior high, particularly resiliency and developing and maintaining different relationships. For high school a curriculum link is made in developing content and connecting self, text, culture and milieu in the subject of English. The one thing that all of the lessons have in common is that they ask the students to relate the experience of another to themselves, nurturing mindfulness and compassion.
Dialogue questions have been created to complement each video to support educators and facilitators in beginning a dialogue on the many important issues in our community. These dialogue questions are simply offered as a guide; who knows where the conversation will take you!
