Learning Plans

Learning Plans are built by teachers and reflect backward design. The Learning Plan Builder allows you to combine the Learning for Justice Social Justice Standards, Common Core-aligned literacy strategies and student performance tasks with windows-and-mirrors texts from the Student Text library. The result is a comprehensive, literacy-based plan that is both rigorous and relevant.

Browse, search, save and choose your favorites from this collection of Learning Plans created by Learning for Justice staff and LFJ users. You can build your own plan at any point by selecting the blue Build a Learning Plan button on any page or the red Teach This button on any article.

At the heart of all Learning Plans are the Learning for Justice Social Justice Standards. Not familiar with the Standards? Learn more here.

Welcome to Learning for Justice—Formerly Teaching Tolerance!

Our work has evolved in the last 30 years, from reducing prejudice to tackling systemic injustice. So we’ve chosen a new name that better reflects that evolution: Learning for Justice.
