Lewis and Clark 200 Years Later

On the 200th anniversary of the Lewis and Clark expedition, the Spring 2006 issue of Teaching Tolerance confronts a complicated legacy—including the Native American perspective.

This issue also spotlights education leaders building bridges—from an Irish exchange program to a school on the U.S.-Mexico border. And look for features on the role of art and written words in addressing social issues (featuring The Comic Book Project) as well as an interview with author James Howe.

These stories and more showcase the importance of asking important questions, and seeking creative answers.
