How do we take gandhi’s messages further, as lessons that could bring about change in and around us? perhaps a healthy dose of non-violent, solution-focused activities stemming from gandhian principles would be a more productive approach both at school and at home, especially for the citizens of tomorrow.
how do we teach our youngsters non-violence is a conscious choice; that we need to rise against injustices; that ‘hope in action’ and ‘moving from apathy to action’ are of supreme importance; and that ‘satyagraha’ is the very foundation we stand on?
this book literally equips teachers and parents with tools and strategies for peace-building. for teachers, it takes these into the rigorous academic classroom; for parents, it is a guide to how they can build better relationships with their children whilst helping them step forward into a better world. the gandhi experiment teaches teenagers global citizenship, conflict resolution, anger management, forgiveness and how to mould their thoughts for a more positive future.
using thirty-plus years of experience, margaret hepworth combines concepts, techniques and practices, creating activities that engage, provide equity and enable teenagers to make powerful and positive choices for a better tomorrow.
