Students Educating Each Other about Discrimination (SEED).
Thornton, Miguel E.; And Others
This manual is for the Students Educating Each Other about Discrimination (SEED) program and describes its philosophy and curriculum. This curriculum was approved by the Ann Arbor (Michigan) Public Schools School Board. SEED tries to eliminate most forms of discrimination through a program in which high school students encourage sixth graders to keep open minds. Facilitators begin by introducing themselves and sharing things about their personal experiences. Prejudice, stereotypes, and discrimination are defined to construct a common vocabulary for later discussions. Activities and games that help students understand the pain that prejudice and discrimination can cause are presented for use throughout the curriculum. Issues of peer pressure and race and gender stereotypes are explored. This manual does not provide schedules for curriculum delivery but does contain tips that student facilitators would need when working with sixth graders. (SLD)
