The aim of this unit, developed within the Pestalozzi Programme, is to make teachers realise how essential their work is in educating young generations to feel responsible for their own personal and academic development, to be aware of the high responsibility of their role, which begins at an early age, in all stages of social intercourse. The activities in the unit reflect the importance of teaching tolerance and respect and engage practitioners in reflecting on and discussing the approaches to tackle these topics in the classroom context.
The unit can be used at initial or in-service training of teachers of Primary & Secondary education.
