Add to My LockerWeb Site

Developed by the Southern Poverty Law Center, this site offers an extremely rich amount of information and materials to help fight discrimination and hatred in all its forms. The organization defines tolerance in this way: "We view tolerance as a way of thinking and feeling — but most importantly, of acting — that gives us peace in our individuality, respect for those unlike us, the wisdom to discern humane values and the courage to act upon them."

Published by Tolerance.org in 2005

"My eCoach has helped me realize how much more powerful the teaching of standards can be when technology is used as a tool to get and keep my students engaged. Over the past year, I have been working with My eCoach to create and develop technology based projects that help my students look at and use the core 6th grade standards fractions, decimals, and proportional reasoning - in a real-world context!"
