This discussion is about I Am...Kit -- Building understanding across differences and fostering belonging.
I watched this simple video with my children: 7, 9, and 11, and was amazed at the discussion we had. I think that the work done towards integrating this learning tool in our schools will have an impact in the way people see "difference" and how the topic of bullying can be approached.
This is such a great idea and the way that L'Arche has moved the project through various stages from an idea at a workshop to a DVD in one community and now moving it into a resource that can be used more widely is just great. I have ordered the kit and plan to adapt it for use in teaching at the university level as well - this is the kind of thing that can nicely compliment other things the students will study in theory and history. many thanks for the great work - p
