The curriculum includes lessons that encourage students to reflect on their identity, understand and appreciate differences, explore societal issues arising from bias and discrimination, understand how people have historically confronted bias and injustice and take leadership roles in promoting justice and equity in their schools, community and society. The curriculum includes a bibliography, glossary and professional resources for educators.
