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.

  • Play games* that teach the basics of coding. Discuss with 3 people how gaming and coding fit into and to what extent they help shape/enhance/change/influence reality.
  • Read at least 5 books on coding. Create* your own basic coding system for something in your reality, and one for something not in your reality.
  • Choose a field from the green molecule and find an expert in that field. Do an internship* with this expert and pay attention to the reality of the field you are experiencing versus your previous views on it. Discuss your experience with your mentor, and what they learned about the realities of this field versus their pre conceived notions. Write a 5 page report on your experience and learnings.
  • Read at least 10 articles on Systems for evolving technology, machines, and A. I. Write a 3 to 5 page report* on the extent of which these systems may/do/could influence and affect reality.
  • Present a lecture* to newer students about technology masters and their contributions to changes in perceptions and/or experiences of reality. Include both positive and negative effects of their designs, products and systems.

Include answers to the following questions: Explain how and to what extent your identity changes in different situations. Do your values and beliefs always stay the same? Why or why not?
  • Look at systems theory and design in relation to the desired state versus the reality in your community. Create a list* of the 3 systems you feel work best and the 3+ that need most improvement, including explanations for each one on why you feel the way you do. Write recommendations for the ones that need improvement.
  • Define 20 social/recreational/entertainment/interpersonal systems that exist in your reality. Create a brochure* for others that discusses these systems and offers positive opportunities for the reader to enhance their awareness and influence on their own reality.
  • Choose a list of 10 masters from the indigo molecule and study the way these innovators “manipulated reality” to achieve their goal. Write and publish* a free-share essay* on their contributions.
