  1. What does No Place for Hate mean to you?

    No place for hate means that there is nowhere in the world that is filled with hatred. In this case, hate doesn’t exist in that one particular place. Therefore, no person is allowed to hate each other.

    In what ways are you helping our school be a No Place for Hate school?

    I privately promoted my school to be a No Place for Hate school by putting posters up on the hallways, saying that we are all equal with many diversities. Also, I am helping the school by emphasizing that everyone has a right to be hate free.

    What activities did you see in the resource guide that you think we should do as a class?

    In my opinion, the listening journal activity would be a good idea to do it in our class. By doing that, we can get ideas from our peers on how to have a school that is hate free. We will record the examples of hates that our peers have received. However, we will also record the resolutions based on their opinions.

    No Place for Hate means that we don’t allow hate to be a part of our lives. That includes, for example, taking action to make your community a place where everybody is welcome and where discrimination is nonexistent.

    I think “Mix It Up” would be an interesting idea to do in our school because in our cafeteria students usually sit with people from their country. I am curious to know what the students’ reaction would be.

    1. Yes that idea is a good one too, but i also think it is a difficult thing to get accomplished.
      To not allow hate to be part of our lives sounds a little bit surreal because hate is part of being human, in the meanwhile i'm not saying that we should hate or we can't fight it but hate will always be part of our lives, might not from ourselves but from someone else, don't forget people hate for no reason.

    The ways that I'm helping my school to be a No Place for Hate are trying to help people to understand that the place where they from doesn't matter because all of us are human and as a humans we have right and we have to respect it. Also I'm trying to be in peace with my partner when they are bother me, i just talk to them and we try to fix the problem in a safe way.

    What activities did you see in the resource guide that you think we should do as a class?
    Some activities like “rock against racism” we should do in class because every teenager likes to do new and creative thing. Also with this activity they can have fun and learn more about other cultures, so they can have a new idea about them and not just the stereotypes. Another activity that we can do in class is make a big mural in which talk about the human rights and the good part is that all the students can print their ideas in the mural. In that way all the students can see the different point of view of each others.

    I am in the student organization. We are leaders and need to give the good example to the students. We did posters in different language how we should all respect each other. And when I see I kid that need help I always help depending of my possibilities or I just call a teacher for them and explain them the situation. Our school is an international school and we are all immigrants there isn't that much of hate.


    What activities did you see in the resource guide that you think we should do as a class?
    I think we should do media literacy because it is interesting and analyze stereotype among us. How people in now days stereotype. And also orientation because so many new immigrants come to the school and don't speak English that much and they need help and support. We have welcome them and make them feel comfortable in our school.

  24. What does No Place for Hate mean to you?

    I personally think No Place for Hate means a place or an environment where everyone respect and don’t discriminate each other either based on racial or cultural differences.

    In what ways are you helping our school to be a No Place for Hate school?

    Last year, I was a part of an assembly where I worked with one class and taught them on how to stop and stand up if you see bullying in school. Also, in our Student Organization club, we made a lot of posters about giving respect to one another. Afterward, we posted them in our hall of flags for everyone in the school to see.

    What activities did you see in the resource guide that you think we should do as a class?

    Our school is already a No Place for Hate school. But I think there are still a lot of things we could do to keep it that way. There are a lot of activities in the resource guide that I think will be really interesting. One of them is the ‘ I am unique because..’ In the guide it says to make poster and have them posted in our classroom. But I was thinking that it would probably be more interesting if we make a video interviewing a lot of students in the school the reason why they think they are unique and edit it all together. Another activity that I found interesting was the field trip. It would be really nice if as a class we go visit places or landmarks that are related to struggles for humans and civil rights.

    To me No Place for Hate means, there would be no one discriminated, racist, bullied or do any disrespectful works. Everyone treat each other respectfully and equally without leaving any place for impoliteness.
    Making posters, presentation, acknowledge students about basic human rights if they misbehave and give them advice about being respectful. I also think, being a part of this class I am helping my school by what I am learning.
    I think. making an Orientation activity would great because we see many problems between new students in our school.So if school create an orientation program before the class start and give speech about human rights and ensure new arrivals comfortable.

    For me personally No Place for Hate means when we expose young people to other cultures and faiths, celebrate diversity and promote respect for differences by leaving no space for prejudice and discrimination.

    In what ways are you helping our school be a No Place for Hate school?
    I speak out against discrimination and let others know if someone is being bullied based on prejudice. I help others students be aware of things going around in school and get them involved in making the school safe for everyone.

    What activities did you see in the resource guide that you think we should do as a class?
    We should come up with something like“I am unique because…” on construction paper, and post the statements around the room. I think we should do a song regarding No Place for Hate. I would love to have a guest speaker come and share their experience to the class.

  27. 1.What does No Place for Hate mean to you?
    I personally see the term “No Place for Hate” as respect and tolerance of individuals toward different cultures, beliefs/faith, sexual orientation. It is also to cherish diversity and pushing prejudice and discrimination away.

    2.In what ways are you helping our school be a No Place for Hate school?
    When I see someone is discriminating against or mentally bullying someone else, I stand out and tell that person to knock it off and at certain point I even try to get an adult involved. I try to teach my peers to be aware of what is really going among students and how they can help out.

    3.What activities did you see in the resource guide that you think we should do as a class?
    Based on what I saw in the resource guide, I believe that it might be significant to communicate the messages through a certain form of media or entertainment such as a short film, short music video, media literacy, poetry slam, and dramatic representation.

    To me, No Place For Hate is a place where there is respect among all and where everybody feels equally treated. A place where there is diversity is better if there is no hate, discrimination or intimidation.

    In what ways are you helping your school be a No Place For Hate school ?
    To make my school a No Place For Hate school, my peers from the student organization and I have been putting up posters about No Place For Hate and Respect For All. I also think that we should have some workshops to teach students around the school about the importance No Place For Hate and Respect For All.

    what activities did you see in the resource guide that you think we should do as a class ?

    In my opinion, No Place for Hate means all people work together and create a harmonious, warm, respectful environment. There will be no hatred, discrimination, stereotyping.

    In what ways are you helping our school be a No Place for Hate school?
    First of all, I think everyone here is helping our school to become a No Place for Hate school because we are in this human rights class. Especially in a diverse school like ours. I make friends with students from all countries. When I was in Mrs.Decatrel’s class last semester. We did a project to help fellow students recognize the diversity of our school. We teach them to act and speak more carefully because we might hurt others somehow even though we might not mean it.

    What activities did you see in the resource guide that you think we should do as a class?
    As a class, I think we can do the project on topic “Stereotype”. I believe we all stereotype others in some cases even though we might not notice. I think it’s very important to find out what are truth and what are stereotypes we have. It’s true that we learn stereotypes from our friends, media, movies and so on. It will be helpful if we have discussions on those stereotype so that we can know a specific group better.

    It means no hatred, discrimination and stereotyping around the world. It also means that people work together to make a peaceful world.

    In what ways are you helping our school be a No Place for Hate school?

    I can speak out about no hatred between students and also for discrimination.

    What activities did you see in the resource guide that you think we should do as a class?

    I think may be we can go to a school which is not a No Place for Hate school as a field trip. Then, we can contribute the information about No Place for Hate.

    To me, No Place For Hate means giving respect to everybody, a place without discrimination and bullying, full of friendship and equality.

    In our human rights class we have done poster about discrimination and bullying, posted in the walls and we have also given speeches to our peers.

    We can make videos and also go out to spread the word that everyone deserves equality. i would like to promote diversity in the school since there are a lot of segregation.
