You Can Make A Difference Curriculum
How the curriculum works:
The program is designed for three 45-minute class periods and is
easily adapted to a variety of time frames. It contains teacher
directions, two videotapes and reproducible materials to stimulate
discussion on moral decision-making. The materials are multi-ethnic,
including quotations from the Qu'ran, the Torah, the Talmud, Martin
Luther King, Jr., James Baldwin, and men and women rescuers from
World War II.
The lessons include directions for opening the presentation, presentation
for each video, group work, questions for discussion, and activities
to close the lesson by relating the material to the student's academic
and social world.
