During the 2017-2018 school year, Teaching Tolerance produced nine webinars ranging in topics from the so-called “alt-right” to our newest framework, Teaching Hard History: American Slavery, which is designed to help educators overcome the shortcomings of textbooks and state standards in teaching this history. 

More than 2,000 educators from across the United States joined us live for these informative webinars, but if you missed any of them, see below for more information and watch them on demand.
