Get Your Students Jazzed About Voting!

Voting rocks! So why don't more people do it? In the Fall issue of Teaching Tolerance, we invite you to ponder this question and to re-examine what, how and why you teach.

Should you teach controversial subjects? This issue covers touchy topics surrounding religion and helps you bring them into your classroom. How do the book you choose influence students? This issue helps educators see the value of culturally-responsive literacy practices. Why do you return to the classroom each day? This issue highlights the struggles teachers face in promoting equity, while the cover story reminds readers of the ultimate reason we endure those struggles: educating and empowering students to become citizens of a diverse democracy.
