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.

Any one of these suggestions could be replaced with a written paper, any form of art project (drawing, painting, music, paper mache, clay, wood, knitting/embroidery, metals, etc. etc.), an experiment, a presentation, a mindmap, a computer program, a web design project, a piece of poetry or a song, an interpretive dance or play, a group project, or anything else.

Caring-Technology-Theme-Icon

Technology

  • Use an app* that involves characters taking care of others, i.e. doctors, firemen, etc. 
  • Find and play a video or internet game* that teaches coding and has a theme of love and connection. Discuss with other players how playing a game that involved caring felt.
  • Watch 3 movies* with caring as a theme and write a review that includes examples of caring in the movies, and how watching the movies made you feel.
  • Create an app* that encourages the users of the app to be kind and caring people. Have test players tell you the experience they have while using the app.
  • Choose at least 3 systems from the blue section and write a manual* on how to demonstrate caring while participating in these systems.
  • Choose at least 5 people listed in the indigo bullets and create a video presentation* highlighting the individual’s contributions to humanity; and if and how these individuals involve the value of caring in their designs and developments. Free share the video on the internet.
  • Investigate social media outlets and create a digital presentation* of ways the companies and/or individuals present empathy to the public. Present this in an open forum* and add suggestions or kudos to the appropriate groups for the ways they encourage or discourage caring in society. 

Caring-Innovation-Theme-Icon

Innovation

  • Talk to 3 people* about strategies they use to demonstrate caring of others. Practice these strategies in your own life.*
  • Use intrinsic awareness to figure out people and things you care about. Talk to someone* about what you discover.
  • Create a picture* that represents your beliefs on caring.
  • Write a 5 page paper* about values/needs hierarchies and where caring fits in these systems. Give specific examples about love and connection, honesty and integrity and diversity.
  • Research a variety of governance systems and write a thesis* about the application of caring within a governmental structure. Include your own observations and suggestions.
  • Create a motivational/inspirational workshop* focusing on caring. Lead the workshop to at least 3 different groups of people and record the responses from each of the populations.
  • Using the list of philanthropic organizations in the violet bullets, do a comparative study* on how and what these groups are doing to make the world a more caring, loving place. Provide specific examples and present* your study on a free share video talk.

* Please note that anything with an asterisk is just a suggestion. The diversity of options with asterisks are interchangeable and purposed to stimulate your own ideas. Any one of these suggestions could be replaced with a written paper, any form of art project (drawing, painting, music, paper mache, clay, wood, knitting/embroidery, metals, etc. etc.), an experiment, a presentation, a mindmap, a computer program, a web design project, a piece of poetry or a song, an interpretive dance or play, a group project, or anything else. What we feel is most important is that both the Learner and the Teacher agree on an exercise/activity they both feel would be maximally engaging, fun, and effective. If you come up with an idea we haven’t already thought of, please share it with us.
