“Teaching respect, equity and inclusion to 8-12 year-old students”
The mission of this toolkit is to assist teachers in their work to instill in children the values of respect, equity and inclusion through engaging activities.
Schools and teachers have a unique opportunity to bring the values of respect, equity and inclusion into the classroom.
The activity cards can be used in your classroom, gymnasium or outdoor space and can be used independent of – or to complement – your existing curriculum. This toolkit is meant for an international audience. We acknowledge that education practices and resources differ from one region to the next. As such, we have worked to make the activities as flexible and adaptable as possible and provide suggestions for modification of equipment and the activities themselves along the way. We encourage you to modify the lessons to suit your individual group. We hope you and your students enjoy using this toolkit as much as we have enjoyed putting it together.
This toolkit includes:
- Quick Guide
- Envelope Folder
- Greeting Cards
- Teacher’s Companion
- 30 Activity Cards
The partnership came together as its various members identified a common desire and interest to promote values-based education in schools. Through the literature review, it was found that physical education and sport have the potential “… to promote values such as fair play, equality, honesty, excellence, commitment, courage, teamwork, respect for rules and laws, respect for self and others, community spirit and solidarity as well as fun and enjoyment” (UNESCO, 2015). In recognition of this potential, the Education Partnership decided to use sport and its positive values as the context for their resource.
