Respecting Our Differences. A Guide To Getting Along in a Changing World.
Duvall, Lynn
This guide for young people ages 13 and older helps them learn more about others and become more tolerant of differences. The more they learn about diversity, the harder it is to stereotype others and feel prejudice toward them. The book lists questions and answers that young people actually ask and provides real-life examples of how other young people have handled similar situations. Activities encourage readers to examine their own attitudes and question their own beliefs. Chapters include topics covering making change, unlearning prejudice, choosing sensitive language, and analyzing one's own response to issues of diversity. A resource section lists 50 books, films, and pieces of music and 24 organizations that can provide further information. A bibliography lists 57 sources. (SLD)
