The Skin I’m in
Can we see ourselves in others? What does respect look like?
Using a Dr. Seuss’s book as a provocation, this integrated arts workshop focuses on the theme of racism. Through role-play, participants receive a shocking invitation and are then guided to develop their own story. Through this educational drama, participants realize their own prejudices and work towards a win/win solution of inclusiveness. This is a powerful unit, bringing a stark awareness of students’ own biases, providing a platform to deal with anti‐bullying.
Your students will be able to:
Create an awareness of body language enabling students to recognize non-verbal communication
Think about a situation from a more empowering context which can change the outcome
Work in teams bringing strength to ideas and validating possible solutions
Experience working together to bring about a win/win solution
