Teaching Tolerance

They help teachers and schools educate children and youth to be active participants in a diverse democracy.

Teaching Tolerance provides resources to educators—teachers, administrators, counselors and other practitioners—who work with children from kindergarten through high school. Educators use their materials to supplement the curriculum, to inform their practices, and to create civil and inclusive school communities where children are respected, valued and welcome participants.

Social Justice 101 Workshop

This interactive workshop provided by Teaching Tolerance helps teachers learn how to effectively implement anti-bias instruction in their classrooms. Participants will explore practical strategies for accomplishing academic and social-emotional goals side by side. They will discuss learning conditions that honor all identities and reflect diversity, equity and justice. After exploring ready-to-use materials, applying rigorous standards and planning ways to incorporate research-based teaching practices, participants will leave the workshop with ideas and tools for transforming their classrooms and schools.

Participants will learn to:

  • Incorporate the Teaching Tolerance Social Justice Standards to create and sustain classroom and school environments that honor diversity, equity and justice.

  • Speak up—and teach students to speak up—against bias and injustice.

  • Build a collaborative and respectful learning community with a diverse group of learners and educators.
