A practical curriculum for teaching life skills and tolerance. Over 60 hands-on activities help students understand how personal values are formed, how misperceptions affect relationships, and how they can communicate effectively. Lessons on decision-making, creative thinking, participation, and collaboration provide students with the practical skills needed to solve personal and societal problems and encourage students to take an active role in society. Lesson plans contain learning objectives, background information, materials needed, activities, discussion questions, and teacher tips. Activity and resource sheets are available for downloading from the web site.
Serghei I. Cartaşev is director of the Promotion of Tolerance and Social Competence Project in Chisinau, Moldova. He has extensive experience in developing educational materials and workshops on peace, tolerance and interethnic relations.
