While MANGO's main focus is very simple, our campaign covers a lot of different areas of education. These mostly focus on the classroom, but much of this campaign addresses other aspects of schools.
Language Learning is extremely necessary to connect the world around us. Writing skills, for example, are essential for survival, as are public speaking and listening skills. Reading is often the first way that students learn to navigate through other subjects in school and learning the alphabet is a big part of that experience.
Studying different cultures is imperative in our schools, but we must include a global perspective on the world and not just the viewpoints of one country when we study other countries. Understanding other economies, celebrations, and other ways of life brings the world closer together.
As humans, we communicate all the time and there are so many ways we can implement advertising in our education systems. Print, digital, and broadcast media, as well as word-of-mouth advertising, are examples of topics that we can cover in our schools so that students can enhance their knowledge of the business world.
Students should be taught at an early age about the importance of consent, as well as the dangers of rigid gender roles. Furthermore, safe schools must educate people about addressing rape, assault, trafficking, and sexual harassment. They should also emphasize on other problems such as domestic violence and STDs.
Education is not limited to classrooms, as extracurricular activities play an important role in the growth of students too. Student organizations allow people to build their leadership skills and other divisions of student affairs departments that are important include disability services and international offices.
Law & Politics
Political science, public policy, and law classes are valuable for us to know our rights as citizens and understand what the functions of governments are. Incorporating a global understanding of civics can raise awareness of what we can learn from other countries on how government can run more efficiently.
While MANGO mostly focuses on the humanities, we still embrace STEM education. Mathematics is crucial in our schools, as numbers are everywhere. Areas of math such as statistics, arithmetic, and geometry are used extensively in our world and it is important to prepare the students of tomorrow to use numbers.
History is a form of the humanities that connects us with the past. We often learn about political history in schools, but topics like inventions, business, philanthropy, and others can be taught as well. Likewise, our history classes should be very interdisciplinary in terms of subjects that they intersect with.
Visual arts classes can allow students to become more creative in their approaches to teaching people about the world. Filmmaking, drawing, painting, photography, ceramics, and other areas of fine art can be combined with any subject to make it more appealing for students to learn. Visual arts can also enhance other subjects.
Performing arts, as well, can be implemented with other academic disiplines to make studying a more engaging experience. Theatre, dance, and music don't have to be excluded from subjects such as science, mathematics, language arts, or social studies. Instead, they can be infused in the classes we already take in school.
