        Repairing the Fabric of Democracy | Lesson Plan | Global Oneness Project

        Students read a short article, "Five Habits to Heal the Heart of Democracy," by Parker Palmer who presents qualities of citizenship that are essential for sustaining democracy in troubled times. Palmer suggests that we must value our differences, draw inspiration and greater understanding from contradictions, and celebrate the power of community building to restore our democratic society.

        In this lesson, students discuss the values and efforts that contribute to a healthy democracy. Reflective writing prompts are also included for students to demonstrate their understanding of the story.
