This formative assessment of Teaching Tolerance's Perspectives for a Diverse America curriculum was conducted by Shuster Consulting.
This report represents the culmination of a pilot program and evaluation of Perspectives that took place in the 2013-2014 school year. A five-phase study was designed to answer the following questions:
- Did the scope and nature of the Perspectives curriculum meet teachers' needs?
- Did Perspectives improve teacher capacity in implementing the Common Core State Standards and the goals of anti-bias education?
- What effects of using Perspectives did teachers see in their classrooms?
- How did the findings relate to the research informing the Perspectives design?
