The Outcomes of Teaching Tolerance: A Research Report Submitted to the Graduate Social Science Education Program.
This study attempted to record possible changes in individual students involved in a "teaching tolerance" program. Approximately 70 high school students enrolled in a "Participation in Government" class were analyzed qualitatively to determine whether individuals experience a change in attitudes toward those different from themselves. Writing samples, an open-ended survey, interviews before and after video-viewing, and observations were used to gather data. The paper concludes that the program worked on various levels within the classes due to the resource materials presented and the opportunities to explore diverse viewpoints among class members. (EH)
