Developmental Designs for Middle School

Teaching Tolerance

Teaching Tolerance is proud to partner with The Origins Program to present 20 advisory activities selected from Face to Face Advisories: Bridging Cultural Gaps in Grades 5-9.  The meetings in Face to Face Advisories expose students to diverse perspectives and guide them to understand those perspectives and to critically and honestly analyze ideas from a variety of cultures. It all happens through safe, engaging, guided peer-to-peer activities that build social emotional skills and connections across differences.
