Our Work – Media Initiative for Children
– The Respecting Differences Curriculum –
Our curriculum includes mass media animations, in-depth teaching instruction, parent involvement, and a detailed classroom curriculum supported by dolls, puzzles, games and songs based on the TV cartoon characters.
Set in a play park, the cartoons feature young children characters with different backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities. The messages in the “Together in the Park” cartoons are reinforced in the classroom through the use of resources and interactive activities that prompt children to talk about their feelings and attitudes around ‘respecting differences’.
