Building a Better Community through Education: Teaching Tolerance

It is now as important as ever to help build a community based on mutual respect, cooperation, and understanding. One of the most important ways to forge these communal links is through education. If you are an educator or a parent, you should check out Teaching Tolerance, linked here. This site provides free educational resources for teaching topics (K-12) related to class, ethnic, religious, and sexual diversity. It includes everything from a ‘Text Graffiti’ activity on the history of American segregation, through an exploration of gender stereotypes through role play. You can even download a PDF of the latest issue of the Teaching Tolerance magazine for free, here. Take a look and lend a hand in building the foundation for a better tomorrow.
