A seasoned educator, trainer and curriculum writer, Randie Gottlieb's newest book is a testament to her years of working successfully with students, teachers and others. Her skills in negotiating the sometimes controversial terrain of multicultural/diversity education are reflected in how well she has laid the groundwork in presenting curricula with a focus on respect for differences. The materials and activities she has chosen to use exemplify best practices not only in multicultural/diversity education, but in teaching in general. This most welcome book includes clearly written, well organized, detailed lessons, activities, children's performances and retreats --- all tested with students -- that can be used both in classrooms, homes and other places where students gather to learn. Also available for downloading are supplementary handouts and PowerPoint programs that enrich what the book already provides. Gottlieb states, in the book's introduction: "This book is about hope...to help prepare our children for life as citizens in a global society..."/Teaching Unity/ clearly hits its mark on that account and more. Dr. Cynthia Rekdal, Executive Director Washington State Association for Multicultural Education (WSAME)
Teaching Unity provides authentic lessons, activities, and strategies that will result in behaviors which reflect a culturally sensitive and responsive environment. This enlightening manual for cultural intelligence and competence will provide new knowledge for every student, teacher, and parent; furthermore, it will transform the understanding, attitude, and behaviors of all individuals for a better tomorrow. Each page of hands-on activities gives the student the opportunity to investigate and value differences with a time for reflection and self awareness. This book is a must for every classroom and home. Steve Myers, Superintendent Educational Service District 105 Washington State
"As important as the ABCs and the 123s. Teaching Unity will give you
the tools you need...A gift that will last a lifetime, a gift that will
be passed down for generations to come."
*Independent Publisher Magazine*
"We commend your efforts to produce a publication designed to educate our nation's children about the oneness of humanity, the value of diversity, and the need for unity. We appreciate your strong voice on behalf of our nation's children and youth." -- *Robert Listenbee, Office of Juvenile Justice, U.S. Department of Justice*
"Teaching Unity is a bold step towards creating community where there exists division. Thank you so much for sharing such an insightful guide to help us build our community of healthy children in body, mind and soul." -- James Pickard and Rita Rizek, Founders of "A Mother's Wish Foundation"
"I have in my hands your exciting book!! It will be a very useful tool for our work in the field of intercultural education. I have used the book for classroom work as well as for teacher training. In both cases the comments of children and teachers were extremely positive. Teachers claimed they would be glad if the book was translated in Greek in order to use it as an everyday handbook. Children said that the activities were exciting and many of the children "played" the same activities with their parents and brothers/sisters at home after the school program. -- *Dr. Kostas Magos, Professor, University of Thessaly, Greece*
"Teaching Unity is a practical book with lessons to promote diversity through hands-on activities, crafts, songs and games. Its guiding principle is: there is a oneness in which every human being shares and our differences should be a cause for celebration not division.
This book is just the sort a teacher looks for: it contains a variety of activities that are engaging and easy to prepare yet carry with them a meaningful message. Written by an experienced educator who has taught across the US and abroad, it is apparent that these activities are tried and true and classroom ready. The section Lessons and Materials lays out four sample teaching units with craft projects such as Flowers of One Garden, Barriers into Bonds, and Personal Posters, as well as activities like "Name It, Claim it, Stop it" and Personal Stories.
Appropriate warm-up activities and songs are included in this section as well. The book also includes suggestions on how to turn lessons into performances, with ideas for scripts for MCs, group songs and student-led presentations, and a section to help you plan a children's retreat or camp, with many details regarding materials, activities and logistics." -- *SKIPPING STONES: A Multicultural Literary Magazine, Fall 2014
