Peace of Mind's Social Justice Resources
The social justice oriented lessons in Peace of Mind resources are all built on a foundation of mindful compassion for self and others and metacognition skills that help us notice what we are thinking. Our goal is to encourage compassionate curiosity about ourselves and others and to help children consider what they believe in and how they want to act on those beliefs.
Peace of Mind Social Justice Lesson Supplement for Grades 3-5
17 lessons designed to be taught alongside The Peace of Mind Core Curriculum for Grade 3 and The Peace of Mind Core Curriculum for Grades 4 & 5. The Core Curriculum guides teach the critical foundation for these conversations: self awareness, self regulation, compassion for self and others. Once these skills are being practiced regularly in the classroom, introducing the Social Justice lessons can help educators enter into challenging conversations about stereotypes, bias, discrimination, race, racism and standing up for what you believe in.
