El Odio Se Cura: Un Programa Nacional para la Prevencion de los Crimenes de Odio para las Escuelas Intermedias (Healing the Hate: A National Crime Prevention Curriculum for Middle Schools).
McLaughlin, Karen A.; Brilliant, Kelly J.
Designed for use in middle schools and youth organizations, this curriculum, in Spanish, deals with the extent of hate crime in the United States and presents strategies for reducing hate crimes among our youth. This flexible nine-unit curriculum is based on the principles that violence and prejudice are learned and therefore preventable, and that students can develop critical thinking skills to respond to and prevent hate crimes. It includes interactive classroom exercises to provoke debate about issues and ideas, illustrate the profound impact of hate crime, and help students develop skills to recognize and counteract prejudice through involvement at the school and community levels. Unit titles are: (1) "Hate Crime: Who Are Its Victims? Who Are Its Perpetrators?"; (2) "Hate Crime Perpetrators: Why Do They Do It?"; (3) "Turning It on: Examining the Media's Role in the Development of Prejudice"; (4) "What Can We Do? Coalition Building To Promote Social Change"; (5) "Why Differences Divide: Understanding Conflict and the Role of Aggressors, Victims, and Bystanders"; (6) "How It Happens: The Development of Prejudice and Intolerance"; (7) "Seeing the Big Picture: Institutionalized Racism"; (8) "Acting Together for Change: A Dramatic Presentation on Hate Crime"; and (9) "What We Did: Sharing Our Community Project."
