We produce an array of anti-bias resources that we distribute, free of charge, to educators across the country – award-winning classroom documentaries, lesson plans and curricula, Teaching Tolerance magazine, and more."
Rethinking Schools Limited
They are pushing the school to be more equitable for all..."it remains firmly committed to equity and to the vision that public education is central to the creation of a humane, caring, multiracial democracy. While writing for a broad audience, Rethinking Schools emphasizes problems facing urban schools, particularly issues of race." Rethinking Schools is also one of two coordinating organizations for "The Zinn Education Project," which supports the teaching of Howard Zinn's book "A People's History of the United States" to help equip students with the analytical tools to make sense of — and improve — the world today.
Facing History and Ourselves Inc.
Facing History and Ourselves uses lessons of history to challenge teachers and their students to stand up to bigotry and hate. Facing History uses a unique approach that integrates civics, equity, and social-emotional learning (SEL) into core academic content. When Facing History pedagogy and curriculum are integrated into the classroom, educators provide opportunities for students to develop SEL and civic skills and dispositions, including tolerance and empathy, the ability to communicate across difference, a capacity for ethical reflection, a commitment to the common good, and a belief that each person's choices and actions matter, all of which prepare students to be informed, thoughtful, and productive individuals.
