Learning Plans

Learning Plans are built by teachers and reflect backward design. The Learning Plan Builder allows you to combine the Teaching Tolerance Social Justice Standards, Common Core-aligned literacy strategies and student performance tasks with windows-and-mirrors texts from the Perspectives library. The result is a comprehensive, literacy-based plan that is both rigorous and relevant.

Browse, search, save and choose your favorites from this collection of Learning Plans created by Teaching Tolerance staff and TT users. You can build your own plan at any point by selecting the blue Build a Learning Plan button on any page or the red Teach This button on any article.

At the heart of all Learning Plans are the Teaching Tolerance Social Justice Standards. Not familiar with the Standards? Learn more here.
