Click to enlarge

The concept of home is a universal one, and this curriculum guide uses this concept as a springboard to a creating some potentially powerful learning opportunities.  The Home Project offers concrete ideas for using a variety of writing prompts.  It includes background articles on the use of oral history and photographs as prompts, authentic assessment in adult education and the inquiry-based writing workshop.  It shares particular approaches, materials and activities, while stimulating thinking among practitioners to develop creative curricula that are learner-centered and participatory.

The sample lessons involve the arts, including writing poetry, filming a home video, and creating a paper quilt.  Each lesson follows a similar format and provides background on the context in which the lesson was initially taught.  A suggested time frame, materials and resources needed to carry out the lesson and objectives in the form of expected learner outcomes are included in each lesson.

The common concept of home is a particularly useful theme for finding links across cultures.
