We are the World (classes 1–10) is a series on value education and life skills. It was first published in 1989 and revised in 2005; this is the third edition. The books help children to look at themselves and their personal growth; see beyond themselves in the context of society; explore their inner spirituality; and contribute their share to society. Each book is centred on a theme, from ‘Getting to know our world’ in class 1 to ‘Happy and free’ in class 10. The lessons work in seven stages: Key-in (individual work); Share-it-around (group work); Pass-it-on (group presentation); Talk-it-over (class discussion); Think-it-through (reflection); Take-it-in (spiritual experience); and Carry-it-through (action).
