Teaching Tolerance Award
We're writing to let you know that we're now accepting applications for the 2014 Teaching Tolerance Award for Excellence in Teaching. This biannual award recognizes educators whose classroom practices support the TT mission of reducing prejudice, improving intergroup relations and supporting equitable schools.
The application deadline is Jan. 12, 2014. Five awardees will receive a $2,500 cash award and travel to Montgomery, Ala., for a three-day collaborative workshop and award celebration during summer 2014.
Prior to that event, these five teachers will be filmed in their classrooms, and the footage will be used in Teaching Tolerance professional development materials. Teachers applying for the award must agree to be videotaped and secure the permission of their schools and students.
Winners must also be available to travel to Montgomery in the summer for the award event.
to view the application and award details. And please share this opportunity with K-12 teachers in your network who are committed to the TT mission.
We hope you have a safe and happy close to 2013, and we look forward to reading about the great work you and your colleagues are doing with students!
