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 Student Text 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.

Racial Representation in the Media

  • The media is clearly powerful in shaping public sentiment and attitude. This, coupled with the fact that stereotypes are also significantly biased toward negatively depicting minorities such as the Arab, Asian/Pacific Islander, Black and Latinx populations, has dire implications, especially for vulnerable children and teenagers who consume media most and who are particularly absorbent to its messages. It is important, therefore, to unveil the pervasiveness of stereotypes, train students to recognize them, and give them tools to feel empowered to make changes. How does this bias take form, what does it look like, and how can we change it?
