New WorldView Lesson Plan: Compassion and Kindness
By Erin Madsen on Tuesday, July 20th, 2010
The Summer 2010 issue of WorldView magazine is now out, featuring how the Peace Corps community is “bringing the experience home.” Using the article “Letter from Lesotho: Compassion in Action” by Kaye Thompson along with her blog, Angene Wilson challenges students to practice two time-honored virtues that are essential to the proliferation of a more peaceful world. The lesson, Compassion and Kindness, explores how these virtues are defined across cultures, and encourages students to consider how to live them out in their daily lives.
