Not In Our Town is an excellent catalyst for discussion about racial tolerance and diversity. "Watching Not In Our Town Together" is a dynamic resource that helps teachers and event organizers facilitate dialogue about these timely and challenging issues.
The comprehensive 16-page Not In Our Town viewing guide was developed by teachers and is designed to support subjects including: civic responsibility, the bill of rights, diversity, multi-cultural issues, prejudice reduction, and conflict resolution.
Accepted for Grade 11 Social Studies in California, it is appropriate for History/Social Studies, Civics, U.S. History, Literature and English classes. The guide provides thoughtful lessons plans and innovative activities designed to help students strengthen their analytical, interpersonal, study, writing, speaking and listening skills. It also includes a bibliography and resource list.
This lesson is part of the Not In Our School Video Action Kit, a comprehensive toolkit featuring films, lessons, and resources designed to motivate students to speak out against bullying, and create new ways to make their schools safe for everyone.
