Beauty Lessons for Hurricane Sandy Students
My students need 11 book titles such as "Eat Fresh Food" and "Who Moved My Cheese? for Teens" to show them what real beauty is.
What is true beauty? My students do not know how to identify true beauty, but you can change that...
A snapshot of our Middle School shows a diverse high-need school comprised of about 1100 students in grades 6 to 8.
Half of our student population receives free or reduced priced lunch. Approximately half of our students receive support services in addition to their core classes. Many of our students are not native English speakers. The students have all been affected by Hurricane Sandy. The children have lost time in school, some lived without power or heat for weeks, many families still can not return home due to water damage.
It has been said "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" but is it? Is it we or the mass media that decides who and what is beautiful? My Middle School students are very influenced by what they see on television, online and in movies. I want to use these books to teach them the meaning of true beauty, healthy living and good body image.
Please help my students learn that that do not need to look like a super model or someone famous to be beautiful.
This is an important life lesson and I hope they will understand true beauty.
