TEACHING TOLERANCE HAS ALWAYS provided quality anti-bias social justice lessons and teaching tools, and for years our com-munity asked for a full curriculum. The widespread adoption of the Common Core State Standards offered an opportunity forTT to meet this need. Why not go beyond the Common Core and offer an option that also aligns to learning targets that reduceprejudice, promote equity and support intergroup relations?That option is Perspectives for a Diverse America. It’s housed online and it’s FREE.“I see concrete, practicalways to make everydayteaching culturally relevant.”What is Perspectives?Perspectives is a literacy-based, antibias, social justice curriculum that isaligned to the Common Core Standardsfor Language Arts and Literacy—andto the Teaching Tolerance Anti-biasFramework (ABF), a groundbreakingset of anti-bias standards. (To see theABF, turn to the back of this pamphlet.)Its Web-based modular design allows formaximum flexibility, customization anddifferentiation. Use it to plan one lessonor integrate it throughout your scopeand sequence.Begin by selecting an essentialquestion (EQ) that aligns to yourinstructional goals. Questionslike “What makes us who weare?” (Identity) and “How docommunities become diverse?”(Diversity) drive inquiry andstudent connection with content.“I love the ability to tiethe CCSS and Anti-biasFramework together.Great UBD design.”Why Perspectives?Perspectives is ideal for educators whoembrace both social justice values andbackward planning. The curricular elements are aligned to the four domainsof the ABF: Identity, Diversity, Justiceand Action. Using the anchor standardsand grade-level outcomes of the ABF forbackward planning allows you to engagea spectrum of social justice topics and cultural and social emotional competencies—critical in today’s diverse classrooms.How does Perspectives work?Perspectives is made up of four distinctcomponents. Users make selections fromeach component, and together their selections become an Integrated LearningPlan (ILP), which can be saved, printedand shared. The selection process is organized to reflect backwards design.For educators teaching in states thathave adopted the Common Core, the website offers choice, flexibility and the opportunity to infuse CCSS implementationwith social justice values. For teachers innon-Common Core states, Perspectivesstill offers a wealth of resources and aninnovative approach to that is pedagogically sophisticated but simple to use.Practice UBD by selecting performancetasks next. Write to the Sourcetasks (3-12) require students touse the central text as a source forargumentative, explanatory andnarrative writing. Do Something tasks(K-12) build civic engagement andassess progress toward anti-bias goals.ESSENTIAL QUESTION CENTRAL TEXT TASKS STRATEGIES ILPRigorous, relevant texts areat the heart of Perspectives.Select from the anthologyof short texts that meet thecomplexity demands of theCommon Core and align toABF anchor standards.Based on the EQ, the text, your selectedperformance tasks and your students’needs, select instructional strategiesfrom each phase of the learning plan.Learning plan phases align to thereading, writing, speaking and listeninggoals of the Common Core.So how will YOU use Perspectives? kPERSPECTIVES FOR A DIVERSE AMERICA // PERSPECTIVES.TOLERANCE.ORG

ANTI-BIAS FRAMEWORKPerspectives follows a “backwards design” approach that begins with the Teaching Tolerance Anti-bias Framework.
