Teaching Tolerance provides lesson plans for upper elementary, middle school, and high schoolers focusing on how and why legislation is passed by referencing hate crime legislation including the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act.
Increasingly diverse school populations mean that campuses are not, unfortunately, immune to hate crimes. The U.S. Department of Justice addresses the needs of teachers and school administrators in “Preventing Youth Hate Crime: A Manual for Schools and Communities,” available online in PDF form. This resource provides ideas both for immediate action and long-term policy responses to hate crimes, as well as a list of successful programs on campuses around the nation.
