I wrote another blog for Teaching Tolerance that you can find here. It describes an eye-opening experience I had in my second year of teaching about how drastically segregation/separation can affect children. I'd love it if you read it! Even more exciting is the fact that they want me to blog for them regularly!
One more note: If you read this blog on the actual website and not through RSS or Facebook, you may have noticed a "Donate" button to the right. This is a tip jar. I write this blog because of my passion for justice and my desire to ignite that passion in others. Unfortunately, passion don't pay the bills. If you appreciate my work here, please donate! I will also be sharing more valuable teaching tips and strategies in the future (things I wish someone had told me), so if that helps you and you'd like to express your gratitude, every little bit helps me devote more time to writing about these topics. Thank you!
