Former Executive Producer of "The World Today," a local PBS affiliate international affairs program
"Teaching Unity is a high, waving banner being raised in the name of the oneness of mankind – not optional learning, but the very path of human destiny. Your book is a learning guide for releasing greater human potentialities while children are young, thereby changing the direction of human civilization. It has practical steps for turning abstract notions of human commonality into actual experiences of it."
Dr. Susan Walker
Elementary / Middle School Teacher
"I shared the first PowerPoint last week with two fourth-grade classes—along with the donkey example, the gym shoe discussion and the word puzzles. It was a great lesson! The kids were engaged and interested. One of the other fourth-grade teachers was listening in and she told me she couldn't believe how engaged the kids were (this is a very difficult group). She said, 'How amazing these lessons are. They've caught the kids' imagination and curiosity completely! This is really a powerful curriculum!"

Ventura School District, California
"For kids or adults–incredibly adaptable for all ages and learning styles. It's perfect for ELL classes too! The activities―Unity Bingo, Hoop Game and Cooperative Musical Chairs for example―can be used in any social setting to bring groups together and remove barriers in a fun and challenging way.
Every teacher, administrator, counselor, parent, camp leader or religious-school organizer will thank you for your well thought out, easy-to-use book that helps internalize the crucial concept of unity in diversity."
Children's class teacher
"I can't believe it! At my first children class after receiving the Teaching Unity book, I started by explaining what UNITY means, and then asked them one question: How can we benefit from unity in your opinion? And their answers were:
1- We get good friendships.
2- We talk together and solve problems.
3- We love and help each other.
4- Fighting and war are reduced.
5- We feel secure.
6- We develop the capacity for learning.
7- We pray together and get God's blessings.
Dr. Kotsas Magos
Professor of Education
University of Thessaly, Greece
"I have in my hands your exciting book!! It will be a very useful tool for our work in the field of intercultural education. I have used the book for classroom work as well as for teacher training. In both cases, the comments of children and teachers were extremely positive. Teachers claimed they would be glad if the book was translated in Greek in order to use it as an everyday handbook. Children said that the activities were exciting and many of the children "played" the same activities with their parents and brothers/sisters at home after the school program."
"For those of us who home-school our kids, we have the bounty of LOTS of time to work with them and the challenge of almost no available curriculum. So each family is left to make things up, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's exhausting trying to be creative every day. It is such a relief to have a nicely laid out, flexible, and systematic curriculum to work through. So thank you, thank you for your efforts."

"Teaching Unity is a bold step towards creating a community where there exists division. Thank you so much for sharing such an insightful guide to help us build our community of healthy children in body, mind, and soul."
Choral Tales Project
"This wonderful program is a contribution to be celebrated, surely deserving of universal support and use. What could be more vital than to nurture human unity in the hearts of the young? What task more urgent than to illumine their minds, so they can see through, and shield themselves from, the ruinous falsehoods of prejudice."

"Wow! I love the subject matter—the Power of Unity—it speaks across lines of race, religion, gender and all the other divisions that we use to separate ourselves. Really wonderful work."

"I have taught all levels, from pre-school to graduate school, and have conducted educational research in more than 30 countries. This is an outstanding book for all teachers!"

"This is my "go to" book when teaching children's classes in the community. Everything I need for teaching an hour or a daylong class is included, and so easy to follow. Best of all, the children love the activities and are always completely engaged in their own learning!"
