Teaching Tolerance seeks nominees for new award
| Feb 15, 2011
The Southern Poverty Law Center's Teaching Tolerance program is seeking nominations for a new award that will honor educators who excel at teaching students from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds.
The Teaching Tolerance Award for Excellence in Culturally Responsive Teaching has been created both to recognize these teachers and to promote their practices in the nation's schools. Five winners will be selected to receive $1,000 at an awards ceremony in Washington, DC, in December. They also will be videotaped in their classrooms to allow educators across the nation to learn from their teaching. To learn more about the award and to apply, visit the Teaching Tolerance website.
