This week, February 14-18, is Respect for All week in New York City public schools.
Says the DOE: "During this week, schools will have opportunities to highlight and build upon ongoing diversity programs and curriculum-based instruction. Schools will also have opportunities to embark upon new initiatives that promote respect for diversity and engage students in meaningful lessons and/or other activities that focus on preventing bias-based harassment, intimidation and/or bullying."
You can learn about what New York City schools are doing for Respect for All week on the DOE's website.
You can also download free lesson plans from Tanenbaum to supplement your Respect for All week efforts: check out the free lessons available from each of our curricula, or our specialized/seasonal lesson plans.
