Making Curriculum Pop

For those of you who are not familiar with the magazine Teaching Tolerance, the create some wonderful curricula and films to help explore issues of identity with students.

I think the collection of F-R to the E-E films is the most impressive - they have materials for every age group..

Some of the titles:

Viva La Causa
This short documentary film and accompanying teacher’s guide explore one of the great movements for social justice in the U.S. — the Grape Strike and Boycott led by César Chávez and Dolores Huerta. Grades 7 and up.
DVD only

Mighty Times: The Children’s March
This Academy Award®-winning documentary film and accompanying resources tell the heroic story of the young people in Birmingham, Ala., who brought segregation to its knees.

The Legacy of Rosa Parks This Emmy Award-winning documentary film and accompanying resources bring the Montgomery Bus Boycott alive for today’s students. Grades 5 and up.
