    Are you ready to change the world? if you are an educator looking to make a difference in your life as an educator and in the lives of your students, this is the workshop for you. One Clip at a Time is a non-profit organization based in Tennessee that has created an engaging and interactive Social Studies/English/Service Learning program based on the theme of tolerance and diversity and an accompanying educator’s kit designed to motivate and empower students.

    The program crosses the curricula and is standards based. The movement is an outgrowth of the “Paper Clip Project” which brought world wide attention to Whitwell, Tennessee after it was captured in the award-winning film, Paper Clips. Throughout the course of the program, students learn the history of the Holocaust and develop an awareness of the impact it had on the world. Students then discover ways to make positive changes in their own classrooms and communities and are encouraged to continually make a difference.

    At HMTC the two-day session will be conducted by One Clip/Three Village Educators, Irene Berman and Kate Hunter. The first day will include training on the One Clip curriculum and the second day will include action planning and implementation, Survivor testimonies and a museum tour. Lunch is included both days.

    9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    HMTC
    Welwyn Preserve, 100 Crescent Beach Road

    How do adolescents respond to difference? What choices do they make to “fit in?” The best-selling young adult novel Wonder by R.J. Palacio explores these questions through the lens of Auggie Pullman, a young man whose craniofacial anomalies have kept him out of public school until the fifth grade. By following Auggie as he navigates school for the first time, students are able to wrestle with the implications of membership and belonging.

    In this workshop you will:

    • Discover new teaching strategies, classroom activities, and multimedia resources aligned with Common Core Standards that will support bringing Wonder into your classroom.
    • Explore topics such as identity, membership and belonging, and choosing to stand up for others.
    • Receive a complimentary copy of the book.

    There is a fee of $10 for this workshop. Register here. Seating is limited so please register by December 5. 

    HMTC is happy to host this workshop on Wonder, which is a great complement to our education programs on tolerance and anti-bias.
