Today my early childhood curriculum class finished watching "Starting Small" a video about teaching tolerance in early childhood classrooms. I just wanted to share the link and the idea behind this program. The program is available free to educators from Teaching Tolerance--A Project of the Southern Poverty Law Center http://www.tolerance.org/ (temporarily out of stock). Though the program is more than 10 years old it still has wonderful ideas about how children learn about how to live in our society. The video makes me smile, laugh, and tear up all in the same hour. I highly recommend this program.
Along the same idea of helping children learn about themselves and others is another great resource for early childhood educators...one of my favorite books...Roots and Wings--Affirming Culture in Early Childhood by Stacey York.
