As society becomes more diverse and our world more global, teaching students how to be culturally competent and accepting of diversity is an important goal. RaceBridges for Schools offers resources to help teachers create a school climate that fosters knowledge of and respect for diversity. The lesson plans on this site assist teachers in building community in their classrooms while honoring the wide range of differences among their students. It includes lesson plans on topics such as Japanese internment during World War II, tracing the roots of racism, reconciling the two worlds of being American and Mexican American. Some of the lesson plans have Web site links and audio clips. There also teacher resources on creating a welcoming classroom, storytelling as a way of building bridges and creating community, and starting a high school diversity club.
