Heard this before? "The world would be a boring place if everyone was the same" – we agree! But, we want to go one step further in our thought. In this class, we explore and offer steps to truly appreciate the diversity around us. We believe that in order for every young person to do this well, we need to start exploring and celebrating our own diversity first.
This class walks students through different diversity frameworks and allows students to check in with moments of reflection. Ideas are experienced through clips, graphics, interactive flip cards, and multiple-choice quizzes.
We encourage young people to identify their diversities, to be curious, and to lean into what makes people unique and different. When we do this we open ourselves up to replace judgment with compassion and acceptance.
