Teaching Kids to Change the World
Lessons to Inspire Social Responsibility for Grades 6-12Book - 2008
Through a series of modules, this resource offers educators and youth-group leaders a means of inspiring social consciousness and action among youth and teaches young people how to think, rather than what to think. Without money, power, or the right to vote, how do children and teenagers find a voice in society? How can educators and leaders talk meaningfully with students about such broad concepts? Avoiding partisan politics and moral debates, this resource equipsnbsp;educators with philosophical discussion questions, concrete illustrations, and active examples. Each component sets forth anbsp;theme or principle about change; a classroom experiment or activity that illustrates the theme; and an example of a social action ornbsp;service project in which young people can participate to help createnbsp;the change they wish to see,nbsp;showingnbsp;youthnbsp;their role in thenbsp;societal and environmental changes that occur across decades or even centuries.
