toolbox In the Respect Equation, Giving Equals Receiving S killsUSA recently hosted a webinar titled “Respecting All Perspectives,” and students and teachers from 18 schools nationwide joined the lively discussion. How about a lively discussion of your own? As a group, discuss what the word “respect” means. What doesn’t it mean? Can you show someone respect without agreeing with their views? How? Next, think of an experience where your beliefs or culture was disrespected. Describe the experience and your feelings in writing. Have you ever caused someone else embarrassment through disrespectful conduct, even if it was by accident? Write that down, too. Now, come together as a group and discuss some of these examples. How could things have been handled differently in each situation? Learn more about respecting diversity in Level 1 of SkillsUSA’s Professional Development Program, and download the webinar mentioned above at: www.skillsusa. org/educators/skillsusaweek.shtml . We may have come over on different ships, but we’re all in the same boat now. — W HITNEY Y OUNG J R . U Find the photo, win a prize No, the picture on the left isn’t abstract art.
