Reviews - What do customers think about That's Not Fair: A Program for Teaching Catholic Social Doctrine to Sixth Grade and Up ('being Real Series)?
Thought provoking program designed to engage youth in activism. Sep 2, 2008
Our church has used this program for a few years as part of Sunday Faith Formation classes (not in a regular weekday class). It is very thought provoking for our 6th graders, challenging them to think about life outside of their typical middle-class comfort zone. My only wish is that there were more activities to get the kids moving, because sitting & discussing for an hour gets pretty boring. There are some games designed to get kid thinking, but they are few and far between. Some very powerful social justice issues have been raised by our youth since this program was implemented. I think it is a great tool for helping students understand the difference between charity and social justice and to complete acts for each.
