The Essence of Acceptance is very beneficial for my students. They are able to meet people from different backgrounds, talk with them and get a different perspective on a great variety of issues. Students really bond with their interviewees.
This program makes history so much more meaningful by dealing with it on a personal level rather than from text books. It’s so easy to talk about issues in abstract terms, this puts a face of the issues and the news of the day.
The materials were excellent for integrating human rights issues into the classroom. The challenge is to pick out from among the vast curriculum offered the appropriate exercises for your classroom. If you have the opportunity, definitely participate in this program. It will enrich you and your students’ learning experience. It’s the kind of activity that makes teaching and learning fun.
