I’m glad you followed up your superb lesson with the student created collages and statements.
“We need to let everyone know that women are not just objects.” “Acceptance of one’s self is the first step to real beauty.”…
I can see why this bulletin board display is getting the whole school talking. The boys, too, and the juxtaposition of the statements provide for powerful lessons.
You provided a powerful, empowering lesson for those students.
Thanks for sharing, Kate.
When our group talked today it was clear that the young women felt like this was something that they wanted to share with the entire upper school. We have assembly 3 times a week, and they want to take the awareness that that they have discovered in themselves and send out those ripples. That is what it means to be a real citizen.
“Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.” – Grateful Dead
Thanks again for your encouragement.
