A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute
As a leading provider of anti-bias education, the ADL's A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute recognizes that attitudes and beliefs affect actions, and that each of us can have an impact on others, and ultimately, on the world in which we live.
The Institute's customizable, interactive training programs are used by schools, universities, corporations, law enforcement agencies, and community organizations throughout the United States and abroad. The Institute's training modules and standards-based classroom curricula incorporate the latest research from the education field.
A CLASSROOM OF DIFFERENCE™
In order to grow into adults who can successfully live and work in an increasingly global community, today’s youth require school environments that promote respect, inclusiveness and civility. This work is at the heart of A CLASSROOM OF DIFFERENCE™.
A CLASSROOM OF DIFFERENCE offers a variety of training programs for pre-K through 12th grade school communities - educators, administrators, youth and families - which focus on the development of an inclusive culture and respectful school climate by addressing issues of bias and bullying.
PEER TRAINING PROGRAM ADDED TO NATIONAL REGISTRY
After a three-year, rigorous process, the Peer Training Program is now included in the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP), a searchable online registry of evidence-based educational interventions.
Campus and Workplace Communities
ADL is pleased to honor the life of Rosa Parks by offering a brief biography (PDF) of her life and a lesson plan for educators entitled, Rosa Parks: Sources of Information (PDF), which uses the Rosa Parks story as a case study for critically evaluating sources of historical information and the consequences of misrepresentations and omissions in these sources. In addition, ADL has also prepared a list of resources for teachers (PDF) for classroom use.
