Transformative Teachers

These resources, which were designed for middle school students by The Dalai Lama Center for Ethics and Transformative Values at MIT and published on the PBS Learning Media website, can be useful to educators who are interested in helping students develop positive qualities. Each of the approximately three-minute videos covers one of the topics. Readers may like to start with the overview, which explains the program, including a video of students who have benefited from the curriculum. From there, educators may want to navigate to the lessons on cultivating forgiveness, cultivating gratitude, and cultivating self-acceptance. Support Materials, which consist primarily of Teaching Tips, are available for most videos and call up an explanation of the lesson, including how to prepare students for the video, how to generate discussions, and how to engage students in the activities. Other lessons include such gems as Cultivating Leadership Through Self-Acceptance and Forgiveness and Gratitude and the Environment.
