As in the earlier curricula , we primarily teach the concepts of forgiveness and moral love (that we call “lavish love” in the curriculum) through stories. The centerpiece story is The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo. We basically have two parts to the curriculum: First, we introduce the children to the concept of forgiveness and the related concepts of lavish love, inherent worth, empathy, and compassion. Second, we introduce them to these ideasin the context of forgiving. We end the 12-lesson curriculum by asking the students to think about how forgiveness fits into the larger communities of school, home, and other social settings.
