What is Teaching Tolerance?
Teaching Tolerance provides many free educational materials related to building a school climate that celebrates diversity—articles that make you think, lessons and activities, film kits, magazine subscriptions, and presentations to share. Resources are designed to help teachers improve their practice and turn K-12 schools into strong communities that welcome diversity, giving all students an opportunity to learn. The available materials are divided into three areas of focus. The organization also makes recommendations for available resource books.
