Introduction

Think about a time when you felt very different from someone else. Was it because you have a different hair color? Or was it because you like different activities? Or something else? How did it feel to be different?

We learn from people who are similar to us and also from people who are different than us. There are times, however, when we do not hear about the voices that are different from us. Sometimes people are discriminated against because they are different. This project will help students explore viewpoints, experiences, and histories from different people.

Come learn why it is important to learn from other people's stories!
