Lessons for Hope is a web-based, high school curriculum inspired by
my book, Reason for Hope. In my book, I express optimism
for the future and the belief that every individual can make a difference.
Lessons for Hope communicates these ideas to students through activities
Empower them to implement their own real-world solutions to
problems in their
communities and the environment.
Integrate service-learning, character education, and humane education.
Are developed and classroom-tested by educators and the Center for Applied Technologies
Are aligned with national standards.
My hope is that as students complete these activities, they begin to understand that even young people can –
and must – make the world a better place for all living beings.
