NOWHERE TO BE HOME
Lesson One for Nowhere to Be Home utilizes acting techniques to enable students to develop their empathy skills through direct physical and emotional engagement with youth narrator Byin Pu. The lesson inspires students to not only make personal connections with youth in Burma, but to critically examine these connections through the lens of school, community, and country.
Lesson Two will guide students in examining the rights and oppression of political prisoners in Burma through first person oral history narrative. Students will make connections to political prisoners around the world and explore the physical, mental, and emotional challenges of living in exile. Students will also practice empathic listening through partner interviews.
