Description - Lessons in Tolerance and Diversity by Susanna Palomares

Lessons in Tolerance and Diversity is designed to provide teachers and counselors with tools to help reduce racial, religious, ethnic and social prejudice in their schools and to promote tolerance and the celebration of diversity. This highly effective instructional tool helps students better understand the roots of stereotyping and prejudice while examining some of the influences that form their ideas about race, disabilities and other differences. It also explores how stereotypes influence behavior. The lessons are presented in a logical, developmental sequence, from valuing self and cultural identity through communication and conflict management to cooperation and team building. They are designed to counter influences that lead to fear and exclusion of others by helping students to develop self-awareness, esteem for self and others, communication and conflict management skills, and capacities for independent judgment, critical thinking and ethical reasoning. Through the design of the activities and discussion questions, students share their ideas, beliefs and perspectives, and interact with others who may or may not share their points of view. Out of this interaction they learn to withhold judgment, question their own ideas, exercise flexibility and, ultimately, embrace the richness of diversity. This is a must-have guide for all who want to encourage tolerant attitudes among young people. Includes high interest activities, stimulating discussions and reproducibles.
