Carpenter, Margot Learning to Like the World Life Skills- Other,
Multicultural- Other,
In three workshops, teachers Barbara Allen and Robert Murphy show children that their deepest desire is to like the world on an honest basis, and that everything--from a flower to mathematics to their mothers--can be used to like the world. Young people learn this big, important fact--that they can honestly like the world, even as they may be critical of bad things in it, because its structure is sensible, even beautiful, a oneness of opposites. They're encouraged to love knowledge, and through these classes they learn to respect one another more and become kinder to family, friends, and people of other cultures. Class 1: Books Tell You: the World & You are a deep and surprising team; Class 2: What Will Make a Person Truly Strong; or Martin Luther King & the Children's March; Class 3: Do we Want to Be Like Music? Ken Kimmelman's award winning anti-prejudice film "Brushstrokes" is shown.
