The skin may be different, but the aorta is quite the same."

Carpenter, Margot Learning to Like the World Life Skills- Other,
Multicultural- Other,
Music
In three workshops, teachers Barbara Allen and Robert Murphy show children that their deepest desire is to like the world on an honest basis, and that everything--from a flower to mathematics to their mothers--can be used to like the world. Young people learn this big, important fact--that they can honestly like the world, even as they may be critical of bad things in it, because its structure is sensible, even beautiful, a oneness of opposites. They're encouraged to love knowledge, and through these classes they learn to respect one another more and become kinder to family, friends, and people of other cultures. Class 1: Books Tell You: the World & You are a deep and surprising team; Class 2: What Will Make a Person Truly Strong; or Martin Luther King & the Children's March; Class 3: Do we Want to Be Like Music? Ken Kimmelman's award winning anti-prejudice film "Brushstrokes" is shown.

Schuman, Sandy Same and Different: The Neverending Story of Chanukah History,
Multicultural- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Many people have some knowledge of the Jewish holiday of Chanukah, usually incomplete and often inaccurate. I present the historical origins of the holiday in a way that is entertaining, understandable, and informative to audiences whether or not they are already familiar with the holiday. I am especially concerned with universal aspects of the story that relate to the ongoing struggle of people whose cultural and/ or religious background is different from that of the dominant culture. (This presentation was featured at "Sharing the Fire: The Northeast Storytelling Conference" in 2013 and will be published in "Story Club Magazine" in December, 2016.)
$101- $200
