The Right to be Disabled

Summary:

For this lesson, students will watch a video titled “The Right to be Disabled” from the Broadreach Training and Resources webpage. This video details Norman Kunc’s journey from being somebody who wanted to hide his disability, to somebody who realized that he has the right to be disabled and that the world around makes him feel like he was not the way he should have been. This video explores important questions about disability, and civil rights movements in general. Students will watch the video and discuss these topics in think, pair, share series of activities.

Portrait of the Whole Person: Lesson 2 – What is Disability?

Summary:

Students will understand that people have different physical and mental conditions that affect a person’s ability to move, feel, see, hear, and think.

Students will be introduced to the idea that these conditions alone are not the disability. Instead it is how society treats the condition that makes it a disability.  Students will understand that society needs to change to make the condition less of a disability, not the person.
