A NOTE ABOUT ALL ONE COMMUNITY LESSON PLANS

The One Community lesson plans are intentionally designed for use in ANY educational environment and with ALL educational, cultural, religious/spiritual, and philosophical approaches to teaching and learning. They are designed without an ideological approach and specifically so they can be adapted to include the views, preferences, methodologies, and/or ideologies preferred by different parents and teachers.

For maximum flexibility and adaptation, they are also designed to be combined to teach multiple subjects at the same time. Doing this increases the creativity, effectiveness, and fun of your learning environment. Once we are on the property and operating our version of the complete school and Education for Life program, we will be adding video examples of how to combine the lessons. In the meantime, visit the Teaching Strategies page for a list of suggestions.

Teaching trades in the context of freedom, trades classes, One community

Trades

  • Talk about what you feel would make a trade feel free or not free to you.
  • Pick your favorite trade. Come up with 5-10 reasons why you feel it feels freeing to do that trade. Get into a group with 2-4 others that have done the same & share your work. As a group, decide which of the trades in the group is the “most free” and why. 
  • Pick 5 trades & for each write 10 reasons why you feel that trade would feel freeing.
  • Pick a trade & interview 5 people in that field & ask them each 20 Questions related to freedom within their trade & whether they feel free & why. Create a report analyzing the results & identify which aspects of the field are freeing and/or limiting.
  • Choose a trade that had a history of not being free to practice that is free to practice (at least in some aspects) today and create a presentation to teach others how this trade experienced and overcame the adversities in order to become freely practiced. Include any opportunities that exist for it to become even more free & suggestions on how that might occur.
  • Pick one country & research it’s history about trades. Choose 5 trades that you feel most contributed to allowing and creating freedom over the course of history in that country. Create a multimedia presentation* showcasing the freedom-enhancing history of the trades that you chose.
  • Perform an in-depth analysis of the trade you feel would make the largest possible impact if it became more “free.” Write a report on the factors that you see are currently limiting this trade & solutions for these issues. If possible, choose a world-wide (global) company & present your findings to them with the intention of getting your solutions implemented.

Before that day, plan ahead on what you will / will not be doing and what you will be eating / not eating for that day. Then, live that day as you planned it and create a report about the results of how those activities / foods affected your mental / physical / emotional / social health.

If possible, include any statistics on the likelihood of people to succeed/accomplish (versus quit) their desired results on your top/bottom 5 picks.
  • Create a new form of diet & exercise regime that is designed to work with & benefit from the desire for freedom & positively impacts all forms of health. Implement this in your own life for at least a week and, based on your results, make any updates you find necessary to the regime. Open-source / free-share your program in a public forum (website, Youtube, internet forum, magazine, etc).
  • Various aspects of health have been repressed across time in many different cultures. Choose 1 aspect that is still repressed today and create and implement a solution for how to make that aspect more free, doing any necessary research on past instances of repressed health aspects that may be necessary.

TEACHING TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF FREEDOM

 

Teaching technology in the context of freedom, Technology Classes, One Community

Technology

  • Think of 3 technologies that have increased / decreased your feeling of freedom and explore why you feel this way.
  • Use your favorite form of technology in a fun way that shows/explains how that technology increases your freedom.
  • Create a short multi-media presentation on the subject of why you feel social media increases/decreases personal freedom & include a list of which social media you feel increases freedom the most / decreases freedom the most (both, if you feel it applies).
  • Create an app that enhances the feeling of personal freedom (can be a game, tool, etc)
  • Choose one country / culture that has a very “advanced” level of technology & one that does not. Compare and contrast how each cultures’ levels of technology affects their perceived freedom. As much as possible, include the perspective of individuals within and outside that country/culture.
  • Create a combination of technologies that increase personal/individual freedom.
  • Create a new technology that increases freedom for a large group of people.
 

Teaching innovation in the context of freedom, Innovation Classes, One Community

Innovation

  • Talk about how using your imagination increases or decreases your feeling of freedom.
  • Think of a creative way to teach others what freedom means to you and then implement it. Afterwards, examine how that teaching method made you feel and ask the learners about their experience.
  • Consider which types of learning make you feel the most/least free & why. Teach others about your favorite aspect of freedom using the method you find most freeing and teach them about why you chose that method and why you feel its the most ‘free’ feeling.
  • Choose 3 people that you feel are the greatest innovators and research their impacts from the aspect of how free or not free they were in the times of their creations and how this affected their innovations. Create an interesting way to present your findings to others.
  • Do an in-depth analysis on the person you consider to be the greatest innovator that had the least amount of freedom and write a thorough report on this topic including how you feel the lack of freedom affected their ability to produce or provide tangible products/affects for humanity.
  • Design a new combination of teaching/learning components that you feel maximizes the learners freedom. Test it and make improvements as necessary. Free share your new system.
  • Pick either a country that currently is experiencing what you would consider a “lack of freedom” in its education system. Design and implement a strategy in a way you feel would benefit it’s people.
