Teaching Tolerance
A place for educators to find thought-provoking news, conversation and support for those who care about diversity, equal opportunity and respect for differences in schools. Teaching Tolerance supports the efforts of K–12 teachers and other educators to promote respect for differences and an appreciation of diversity.

In addition, they produces and distributes free, high-quality anti-bias multimedia kits. At the Web site, visitors can find:

  • Teaching Tolerance magazine, including current and back issues
  • Ordering instructions for multimedia kits, handbooks, and other resources
  • Web-exclusive features such as "Writing for Change"—lessons that challenge bias in language
  • Classroom activities and resources, classified by subject and grade level.
