Teaching Tolerance and Acceptance Through Project Based Learning

After researching the different causes and effects of homelessness, students will plan a community  for the homeless with services and activities. This PBL unit focuses on a real-world problem, while incorporating 21st century skills.

At most main intersections, you will see signs that say, "Will Work for Food!", "Former Vet", "Lost My Job", "Two Kids", "Anything Will Help." How do you react when you see a homeless person? Do you wonder if you should give them some cash, a Granola bar, or water? Or, just try to ignore him or her and act like the person isn't there. Treat the homeless as if they are invisible. We can help our students become more accepting and tolerant through project based learning.
