Teaching Human Dignity. Social Change Lessons for Everyteacher.
Wolf-Wasserman, Miriam; Hutchinson, Linda
The book is a collection of readings designed primarily for teachers, but also intended for others who are interested in teaching about human beings and building human worth. It contains 60 first-hand accounts of teaching experiences at all levels and offers a perspective for noncompetitive, cooperative, and innovative education. To aid in the search for self and social understanding, it provides social change curriculum materials and a viable philosophy of educational/political change. Articles which help students see the relationship between themselves and their culture can be adapted to the traditional curriculum. Topics include labor studies, third world and women's studies, people's history, oral history, white ethnic studies, writing, drama, and the media. Articles on parents, teachers, and students as political activists, on sex, drugs, homosexuality, death, and dying are also included. In addition, strategies for teaching all of the basic skills are outlined. Learning activities include simulation games, cooperative math games, and play writing. A comprehensive list of resource materials and examples of successful educational/political activities are included. (Author/KC)
