It is taught through interactive exercises: games and activities designed as part of the teaching methodology offer a fun way for young children to learn about differences and similarities among people and to introduce the concept of diversity. All types of differences such as race, religion, language, traditions, and gender can be introduced this way.
The book outlines the variety of ways people can be different from each other including colour, size, language, and family.
The Culture of Conduct is the book authored by Liana Bedinadze designed to respond to the lack of discussion on various concepts and theories of ethics in the public schools in Georgia. The book aims to raise and develop in the students the skills of critical thinking, logic, decision-making and the capacity to analyse what is the right and wrong in specific situations and contexts. The book aims at introducing discussion of moral issues in a systematic way and provides an educational experience.

He also discusses the prospects for peace on the Korean peninsula--is Trump helping or hurting?--and the strange and sensational story behind the impeachment of President Park Geun-hye.
The rise of global populism is the greatest threat to global democracy, and it's mainly driven not by economics, but by people's demand for public recognition of their identities, says political scientist Francis Fukuyama. "We want other people to affirm our worth, and that has to be a political act." How is this playing out in the U.S., Europe, and Asia? What practical steps can we take to counteract it?
