Teaching Tolerance provides free resources to educators—teachers, administrators, counselors and other practitioners—who work with children from kindergarten through high school. These resources include classroom lessons, webinars, grants, podcasts, policy guides and much more. Educators use our 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. The program emphasizes anti-bias and social justice. The anti-bias approach encourages children and young people to challenge prejudice and learn how to be agents of change in their own lives. Our Social Justice Standards show how anti-bias education works through the four domains of identity, diversity, justice and action. Topics include race & ethnicity, religion, ability, class, immigration, gender & sexual identity, bullying & bias, and rights & activism.
Teaching Tolerance was founded in 1991 by the Southern Poverty Law Center to prevent the growth of hate. Visit www.tolerance.org to learn more.
