Not in Our Town

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

 

What would you do to stop hate in your town? What does it mean to live in a safe and welcoming community? These are important questions for your students to ponder during Bullying Prevention Month (October) and as they settle into the new school year. This lesson plan based on the documentary, “Not In Our Town: Light in the Darkness,” focuses on how a town comes together to take action after anti-immigrant violence devastates the community. The story will prompt your class to think about the underlying causes of violence, how to heal divisions and how to take steps to make sure all community members feel respected.

This simple, powerful story of people banding together offers a model that will arm you and your class with information to combat hate and intolerance:
