Courage: Those Who Dared To Make a Difference. Interdisciplinary Unit.
Matheson, Cheryl A.; And Others
This collection of instructional materials and class activities emphasizes five different situations in which courage is a necessary quality. For each section, lessons are planned to extend the theme through a cross-curricular approach. The topics include: a definition of courage; the courage to resist in the context of the Holocaust; mythical tales of courage in a lonely struggle for survival on an island off the coast of California; additional tales of survival relating to the Canadian wilderness, early explorers and inventors in North America, and other stories; the courage to change society's racial attitudes and practices; the courage to believe in one's self and one's dreams and to carry out those dreams; and the courage to fight (stories of soldiers who have gone to war). (Most materials and activities are ready for photocopying and distribution to students.) (CK)
