Culture and Perseverance




Learners will be introduced to the cultural aspects of perseverance. Understanding that students belong to all kinds of cultures will help students to become more empathetic across cultures. Empathy is an integral means of knowing and relating to others and adds to the quality of life and the richness of social interactions thereby strengthening relationships with peers and social groups. The unit focuses on getting to know one another through a close examination of the artists and writing a poem.
