This session will focus on two Teaching Tolerance resources, Perspectives for a Diverse America and the Social Justice Standards. I believe that these two resources are answers to many of the inequities currently facing our schools. Perspectives provides key instructional elements that are grounded in best practices, responsive to student diversity and soundly aligned to academic outcomes. The Social Justice Standards' potential extends beyond the content areas, is centered in theory and research and provides a framework for schools to link the diversity work they do with civic engagement and real-world application, equipping all members of the community with the knowledge and skills necessary to disrupt inequities.
