DLC Quick Tip - Teaching Tolerance
As we wrap up Kindness Week, I was hoping to send you some resources that would help you keep the conversation going in your classes.
I encourage you to check out the Teaching Tolerance website. They have articles, videos, lesson plans, and FREE film kits. All of their resources are completely FREE. They also have a free magazine that they send out to educators to provide us insight into the world of our students, their lives, and the struggles that some of them may face.
A few of us attended the Teaching Tolerance workshops this summer. They were incredibly insightful.
if you are interested, go to Teaching Tolerance and look around. I think there is truly something for everyone there.
