8th Grade 
ToleranceTolerance is respect, acceptance and appreciation of the rich diversity of our world's cultures, our forms of expression and ways of being human. Tolerance is harmony in difference.
We view tolerance as a way of thinking and feeling * but most importantly, of acting * that gives us peace in our individuality, respect for those unlike us, the wisdom to discern humane values and the courage to act upon them.

Concept:  Tolerance

Materials: Printed lyrics from "I’m Lookin’ at the Man in the Mirror" by Michael Jackson, a few mirrors, photos of celebrities in high school.

Procedures/Activities:

  1. The teacher will play the song “Man in the Mirror” or provide the students with the lyrics to the song

  2. The teacher will lead a discussion on the song and ask:

    1. Why do you think that Jackson wrote the song.

    2. What is the message?

    3. What is he saying abut Tolerance?

    4. Who does the song suggest is the person that helps people be more aware of the feelings and thought of other?

    5. Does the song suggest that

  3. The teacher will hand out the mirrors and or yearbook photos and provide a metaphor for this activity. The mirror and photos introduces the idea that the purpose of reflection is to see ourselves better in the present. The students will take a few minutes to look at the mirror or photos and share stories with one another about what they see in the pix or mirror.

  4. The teacher will tell the students using one mirror image or one yearbook photo as an example, the teacher points out the physical development of that celebrity over the years. In addition, the teacher begins to ask a few questions that require reflective thinking, e.g., "Where did this person’s smile go after 6th grade?" or "What was going on in their life when this picture was taken?" “What do you think they were thinking when they had their pix taken with this hairstyle?

  5. The teacher will ask if any of these celebrities have overcome adversity to get to where they are today? They will also discuss if they think their parent/teachers/family had to “tolerate” any special physical changes that this celebrity made from high school (hair, tattoo, piercings, strange clothing). What changes did the celebrity have to make to still “fit in” with their family and friends?

  6. Next, students are challenged to reflect upon a single day in their life that they would change if they had the power to do so. Some questions to address are:

    1. What happened on the day in question?

    2. When did this occur, and what else was going on in your life at the time?

    3. Why do you want to change it?

    4. How would making that change affect who you are today?

    5. I may not be able to change the past, but I can?

    6. I’m glad to be me because?

    7. If there is one thing that I have learned from my experiences, it is?

    8. When I look in the mirror, I see someone who?

  7. In closing, the teacher will tell the students that Tolerance starts with each individual. Everyone can change the way people see and perceive other people by speaking out and supporting one another.


Celebrity Yearbook Photos













Man In the Mirror

"Man In The Mirror" Featuring Siedah Garret, The Winans and The Andrae Crouch Choir Written and Composed by Siedah Garrett and Glen Ballard.

I'm gonna make a change, for once in my life


It's gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right.

As I, turn up the collar on my favorite winter coat


This wind is blowin' my mind
I see the kids in the street, with not enough to eat
Who am I, to be blind? Pretending not to see their needs
A summer's disregard, a broken bottle top
And a one man's soul
They follow each other on the wind ya' know
'Cause they got nowhere to go
That's why I want you to know

Chorus

I'm starting with the man in the mirror


I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change
(Take a look at yourself, and then make a change)
(Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah)

I've been a victim of a selfish kind of love


It's time that I realize
That there are some with no home, not a nickel to loan
Could it be really me, pretending that they're not alone?

A willow deeply scarred, somebody's broken heart


And a washed-out dream
(Washed-Out dream)
They follow the pattern of the wind, ya' see
Cause they got no place to be
That's why I'm starting with me
(Starting with me!)

I'm starting with the man in the mirror,


(Man in the mirror-Oh yeah!)
I'm asking him to change his ways
(Better change!)
No message could have been any clearer
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
(Take a look at yourself and then make the change)
(You gotta get it right, while you got the time)
('Cause when you close your heart)
You can't close your... your mind!
(Then you close your... mind!)
That man, that man, that man, that man
With that man in the mirror
(Man in the mirror, oh yeah!)
That man, that man, that man
I'm asking him to change his ways
(Better change!)
You know... That man
No message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself and then make a change
(Take a look at yourself and then make a change)
