American education is on the verge of creating a social environment where all students with different backgrounds can interact with one another and learn about each other and respect their differences..

In my opinion, we're all unique creatures, but the things we all say sometimes create world wars, etc...

We human beings, are a pain in the butt, but can also learn from our mistakes..

I'm doing my best not to comment any more on Vixen's thread because it's made me say things I regret.. I don't support hate groups....

I'm a loving person.. and here's a little article review for everyone to read! Give your opinion if interested. God bless !

How would you use ethnicity and race of your students to teach a lesson in the subject that you’re planning to teach?

“How the Inclusion of different races and ethnicities is making America # 1”
“I do not regret my past from the war in my country…my only regret was my childhood in the United States. Loneliness is more painful than death itself”
-Anonymous
The U.S is known as the land of the “free and opportunity” and often this message is sent across the globe, and in result it attracts many people to move here. One’s understanding of this message may only be that America is a rich country, and this is a bad message because a good country is not built on its ability to make money, but its ability to hold different races and ethnicities together, which is the message that should be sent. When foreigners arrive into this country, the message “free and opportunity” quickly becomes an opposite especially for the young people who have to continue their education. Once they’re in this country, they feel alone and isolated which is terrifying.
In a social studies class, the teacher can give an assignment where students can be put into groups to do a term presentation on how the inclusion of different races and ethnicities has built America. The teacher can mix up the students according to their backgrounds for this group project so that each and every student in that group can learn more about the other student. This idea will create social interaction among the students and give new immigrants a chance to interact with Americans. In addition, this project will create a positive classroom environment because the students will built more understanding of each other and their backgrounds.
On the due date of this assignment, the teacher will give the class a brief summary of today’s lesson with an explanation on how he or she feels it has made this country number one. The students will then present what they found in their term presentation.
As a result, the students would have learned allot about themselves and respect their differences in the classroom. And although this may just be a lesson from a classroom, it can go across the world and make a difference. People living in other countries presently need to be sent the message that they will not be alone once they arrive in the United States. The problem has been that America has not been building its foundation; in other words, this country was not found to attract people for the money, it was found to bring people from different background a chance to become one.

And becoming one does not mean becoming one race, we all acquire and ackowledge our differences. My request is that my students learn about each other and respect their differences...
