Not Better, Not Worse, Just Different
During this unit we will be identifying ways that people are alike and different from one another. We also will begin exploring the ideas of prejudice, discrimination, inclusion and exclusion. While we tend to think only of racial differences as we discuss these topics, people often pre judge one another in a variety of other ways including but not limited to physical appearance (or even where we buy our clothes), physical abilities (or lack thereof), mental abilities, culture, and age. We also will be emphasizing the idea that even though we are different in many ways, EVERY ONE has the SAME feelings!
