Subject: Respect

	The best way to get them to accept others is to put them in a
situation where there answer is not the correct answer but one that
they must support and defend.  
1.  Create situations where students select answers from a box of
answers where there are several correct answers and several incorrect
answers, but you must support whatever answer you pull from the answer
box.  The idea here is to learn that some students do not know that
their answer or idea is not a valid or correct one but it is one that
they belive in.  
2.  Those who have the correct answers must work hard to convince
those with the incorrect answer that their answer is incorrect.  They
must develop a strategy to correct them without hurting any feelings
or damaging any relationships.
3.  Roles should be reversed until students have been on both sides of
the questions.

GOOD LUCK AND NEVER GIVE UP ON THE CHILDREN.
