Lessons from Nelson Mandela

Helena Aguilar presents for Edutopia 'Lessons from Nelson Mandela's Life and Legacy'. In THIS article, she highlights his compassion, courage and commitment, and suggests bucking her lesson plans for next week and teach a mini-unit on Mandela. She hopes she'd make the decision to teach what feels like an invaluable lesson on a rare and phenomenal human being, and, I quote, "(...) to honor his life, and memory, to teach our children about courage and commitment and the kind of leadership that transforms. This is far more than a 'teachable moment' for our children: it's also one for us, as educators; it's a moment when we can reflect on our core values and the struggles for justice and equality within our own field of work."
