In this institute participants will learn about the Teaching Tolerance Social Justice Standards and a unique pedagogical approach that integrates identity, diversity, justice and action into instructional planning and delivery. This interactive, dynamic experience will include online discussion and activities that uplift the themes of the Museum of Tolerance, using Museum content and facilitators. Workshops led by experts from Teaching Tolerance, will stretch our understanding and application of social justice education goals and embed social emotional learning within an academic content.
