Teaching Tolerance in Preschool and the Early Grades
The vision of community that the early childhood classroom provides can color children's expectations about equity, cooperation and citizenship for a lifetime.
This training kit for early childhood educators profiles seven innovative classrooms in which teachers are helping children practice fairness, respect and tolerance.
"'Starting Small' expanded my vision and philosophy and radically changed what I did in the classroom. Now, as an administrator, I'm providing the kit to staff so they may benefit as well."
The Starting Small kit includes:
- 58-minute film featuring Vivian Gussin Paley
- Companion text (PDF) featuring classroom profiles, reflection prompts and activities
- Teacher's Guide
