RespAct is a methodology, used in sports and democracy projects, that enables children and young people to examine their living environment, examine political and social problems in their local area closely, and find solutions to them together. Through sports and confidence-building exercises participants gain self-confidence and work more constructively as a group.
This handbook includes three variants of the RespAct project week, each of which has its own specific focus for learning environments with children and young people affected by forced and voluntary migration. These variants are Diversity and Identity, New Literacy and Vocabulary and Environment.
This book is designed so that educators can take the right amount of content and apply it to their learning situation; the entire handbook can be implemented as a curriculum for a project week, or individual elements or units of the handbook can be applied for specific classroom goals.
