Through Children's Eyes PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Through Children's Eyes free pdf This book examines how school-age children and youth in the United States, Sierra Leone, West Africa, Jamaica, China, and Russia made meaning of the election of Barack Obama as the first non-White President of the United States. The book is developed from an international research study exploring how children and youth around the world understood Obama's messages. The book further examines whether youth believed race relations in their country or human relations in the world might change as a result of this historic election. Children made vibrant drawings of "what President Obama means to me," revealing their innermost thoughts and secrets. Youth also revealed how they learned about Obama, including their surprising one-word impressions of him. The rich contents of the book, the issues it raises, and the insights it provides will offer readers a unique opportunity to look into the minds of the future generation around the world.
