Teaching Tolerance to Our Students

I first heard about The Southern Poverty Law Center from my aunt. She told me all the things they were doing to rid the world of hate and injustice. Civil rights lawyers Morris Dees and Joseph Levin Jr. founded SPLC in 1971 and the organization is known globally for "tracking and exposing the activities of hate groups."  SPLC's project, Teaching Tolerance, offers free magazine subscriptions to teachers, as well as free film kits, which include DVDs (and accompanying teacher's guide) about bullying, the Holocaust, the March in Birmingham and Cesar Chavez. Under their section on classroom resources, Teaching Tolerance has a nice listing of lesson plans for all ages.With free publications to download, Teaching Tolerance is a website that is a wonderful resource for the classroom.
