The books in the Journey's series present the opportunity to explore issues such as Community, Patience, and Destiny through discussion of the sometimes harsh realities of life, and provide participants with a way to consider the roles they and others play in the social world.
If we think about our lives as journeys, we know that we do not travel along. As members of families, we know that every generation - children, parents, and grandparents - has a different perspective on the journey at each state. Journey are about change, and change is exciting, challenging and, sometimes, scary. #JoltYourJourney
Fairness: Do the Right Thing
Seedfolks by Paul Fleischman is the book used for the four week session at Middle Schools.
The discussion uses a multicultural syllabus, assigned by chapters, that uses stories to relate back to their own cultural experience.
