Teaching Tolerance for Teachers

In the past issues of Canku Ota, we have shared ideas with you about learning and teaching tolerance. Perhaps this will inspire you to come up with your own ideas to share. For more ideas and information, visit

Founded in 1991 by the Southern Poverty Law Center, Teaching Tolerance supports the efforts of K-12 teachers and other educators to promote respect for differences and appreciation of diversity.

Teaching Tolerance serves as a clearinghouse of information about anti-bias programs and activities being implemented in schools across the country. The ideas presented on this Web site and in our semiannual magazine, Teaching Tolerance, represent some of the most innovative, useful initiatives we've found to date. We are interested in learning about your efforts, too, and encourage you to Share Your Ideas.

Teaching Tolerance also produces and distributes free, high-quality anti-bias materials. We recognize that budgetary and time constraints often limit the ability of educators to create original anti-bias curricula. We develop resources that speak to various academic subject areas and grade levels, because tolerance education is the responsibility of every teacher. We encourage you to Expand Your Resources.

Online, Teaching Tolerance shares space with another Center program,, a Web-based initiative that encourages people from all walks of life to "fight hate and promote tolerance." Schools are not islands unto themselves, but rather exist within the larger community. So, we hope that you will take advantage of the materials that offers, too.

Since our founding ten years ago, Teaching Tolerance has earned accolades from a variety of professional organizations. Our materials have earned two Oscar nominations, one Academy Award, and more than ten honors from the Educational Press Association of America (EdPress) including the Golden Lamp Award, the highest honor bestowed by EdPress. Although Teaching Tolerance is proud of these accomplishments, we are most interested in what our audience has to say. Please contact us with questions, comments, feedback and criticisms.
