Educating the Heart: Lessons to Build Respect & Responsibility
by Frank Siccone & Lilia Lopez
"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all." Aristotle
Here is a resource specifically designed to help teachers meet two of the most demanding challenges they face-building students' respect for themselves and others, and promoting responsibility both personal and social. It provides tools teachers can use to turn their classroom into a safe and productive environment where students are empowered to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others. There are over 90 carefully chosen activities in a developmental sequence progressing from valuing the self to appreciating and participating in the world at large. Clear objectives and instructions to use immediately, with reproducible worksheets, activities which pay particular attention to educational objectives. Lessons on interdependence encourage students to value one another and work cooperatively. Problem-solving and conflict management involve students in community service projects. A philosophy of inclusion is reflected throughout the book through vignettes, quotes, and the activities themselves.
