Hello everyone! My name is Jasmine Haynes and I am currently a doctoral candidate at the University of Central Florida. For my dissertation, I am implementing a trauma-informed professional development series for teachers and assessing changes in teachers’ perceptions following the study. I am currently recruiting 5th- 8th-grade teachers (or paraprofessionals) working in underserved schools to participate in this study. Some of the topics covered in the series include: •𝐀𝐝𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐢𝐥𝐝𝐡𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐄𝐱𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐬 (𝐀𝐂𝐄𝐬) •𝐓𝐫𝐚𝐮𝐦𝐚 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐮𝐦𝐚 𝐢𝐧 𝐬𝐜𝐡𝐨𝐨𝐥𝐬 •𝐃𝐞𝐟𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐭 𝐯𝐬. 𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐭-𝐛𝐚𝐬𝐞𝐝 𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐲 𝐝𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐞 𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐝𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬 •𝐑𝐞𝐥𝐚𝐱𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧, 𝐚𝐧𝐱𝐢𝐞𝐭𝐲, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐞𝐫 𝐜𝐨𝐩𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐠𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐬𝐭𝐮𝐝𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬 *𝙋𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙞𝙘𝙞𝙥𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙨 𝙬𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙧𝙚𝙘𝙚𝙞𝙫𝙚 𝙖 $50 𝙑𝙞𝙨𝙖 𝙜𝙞𝙛𝙩 𝙘𝙖𝙧𝙙 𝙖𝙛𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙖𝙡𝙡 3 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙛𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙖𝙡 𝙙𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙡𝙤𝙥𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙩𝙧𝙖𝙞𝙣𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙨𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙨 Please kindly view the attached flyer to learn more about the eligibility requirements and the description of participation activities.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION The interactive book: The Ugly Duckling – Where To? – Education Towards Tolerance* , in English and in Hebrew, printed and digital, suggests a different interpretation than the common one of H. C. Andersen’s most touching story: The Ugly Duckling which was written in 1843. It aims at developing critical thinking among its readers (from 9 years old to 90 +) and at combatting racism by revealing the discriminatory basic concept that stands behind Andersen’s tale: white = beautiful opposite dark grey = Ugly. The Ugly Duckling expresses this view towards the end of the story: …” From a thicket close by came three beautiful white swans” …, he is eager to approach the “royal” birds but hesitates. He looks at his own reflection mirrored in the water: “But what did he see in the clear stream below? His own image; no longer a dark, grey bird, ugly and disagreeable to look at, but a graceful and beautiful swan”. Andersen’s tale is translated into 65 languages. Unintentionally, parents and educators that introduce young children to this tale, teach them a prejudiced lesson that is hard to change or to delete in later years. The readers of The Ugly Duckling – Where To? are invited to carefully examine Andersen’s original story and to invent/choose a happy ending that is consistent with the democratic and the humanist values of our time. I deeply hope that the book will help “….to compose a country committed to all cultures, colors, characters and conditions of man…” (Amanda Gorman’s poem) and will serve as a tool for both parents and educators in education towards tolerance. The book is available at https://www.amazon.com/dp/1089985479 in printed and digital formats in English as well as in Hebrew and would be valuable to 3rd -5th grades. *The booklet is an outcome of the academic essay: Israeli, L. (2011). "The Other - a Resource or a Threat? Polar interpretations of two children stories: The Ugly Duckling by H"C Anderson & Raspberry Juice by H’ Shenav" (Journal of Peace Education, Vol. 8, No.1, p.1-17) URL: http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/17400201.2011.553374 The Ugly Duckling – Where To? is one of a few school programs I have developed in the field of multicultural relations (from kindergarten to college students).
