A couple months ago I had the pleasure of attending a webinar presented by our good friends at HEART (Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers). The webinar is now available for free download from PetSmart Charities (requires registration).

"Expanding the Circle of Compassion Through Humane Education" explores the value of comprehensive humane education offers an overview and a peek into the curriculum and activities HEART uses in their program for students in grades 4-8. As the webinar page says:
  • In the human rights unit, the presenters will demonstrate portions of their child labor lesson “How Much Does that Really Cost?” by using a kinesthetic activity. 
  • For animal protection, the presenters will share portions of their lesson called “Dogs, Cats, and Cows. Oh My!” that focuses on puppy mills and factory farms.
  • Presenters then demonstrate an interactive, environmentally-focused activity, along with guided imagery, with their lesson “Protecting Mother Earth and Her Inhabitants.”  
  • The interconnectedness among these lessons will be emphasized by sharing components of our lessons “The Circle of Compassion” and “The Power of One.”  

HEART is a wonderful model of a successful humane education program. They reach thousands of students a year, in New York City, Chicago, and beyond.

Check out the webinar.
