In the fall of 2016 the Culture & Mental Health Lab joined forces with USU Inclusion and the Office of Civic Engagement at USU to develop the Teaching Tolerance curriculum based on the work advanced by TeachingTolerance.org. We have developed a lesson on civility for elementary school students and another for middle school students. The lesson is delivered in 30-45 minute time blocks. Our team of trained educators work in groups of 2-3 leaders to provide an active and engaging experience for our elementary and middle school students.
We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with our community to advance civility and respect for cultural differences. We can continue to develop courses that advance social justice as needed. Contact us (below!) with your request and we will do our best to accommodate your needs!
