This PowerPoint counselor guidance lesson which is based on the book, The Invisible Boy by Trudy Ludwig, is perfect for teaching the inclusion / exclusion, tolerance, diversity, respect, and appreciating the differences between us. This would be perfect for a lesson on discrimination for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
Amazon's description of the book; "Meet Brian, the invisible boy. Nobody ever seems to notice him or think to include him in their group, game, or birthday party . . . until, that is, a new kid comes to class.
When Justin, the new boy, arrives, Brian is the first to make him feel welcome. And when Brian and Justin team up to work on a class project together, Brian finds a way to shine.
From esteemed author and speaker Trudy Ludwig and acclaimed illustrator Patrice Barton, this gentle story shows how small acts of kindness can help children feel included and allow them to flourish. Any parent, teacher, or counselor looking for material that sensitively addresses the needs of quieter children will find The Invisible Boy a valuable and important resource."
It has 29 slides and includes 11 links to short videos to support these concepts. One video is of Counselor Bev reading the book, The Invisible Boy, aloud.
Animation and transitions are included in the presentation to help to hold the interest of students. Videos are approximately 2 to 8 minutes long.
This multimedia PowerPoint presentation will take approximately 30 minutes to present and is geared toward 2nd grade through 5th grade students. This would be a great lesson for diversity to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Day.
Videos are NOT embedded, but are links. I do not own them, so if there is a problem with a broken link or something else, please let me know so that I can repair and fix the presentation for you. Anytime you have technology incorporated, you have the risk of having related issues.
Just a FYI- links do not work in editing mode in Powerpoint. They are only active in presentation mode. Please be aware of this.
