Partners against Hate Program Activity Guide: Helping Children Resist Bias and Hate.
This guide provides parents, educators, and other adults with tools and strategies to engage in constructive discussions and activities about the causes and effects of prejudice and bias-motivated behavior and to intervene when needed with children who engage in such behavior. Though it targets elementary school, much of the material is relevant to preschool, youth services, law enforcement, and other community workers. It helps increase awareness of the problem of bias crime and shares information about promising education and counteraction strategies. Seven sections examine the following: (1) "Introduction to This Guide" (philosophy, audience, contents, and recommendations); (2) "Background Information" (e.g., definition of hate crimes and bias incidents and bullying in schools); (3) "Interacting with Children on Issues of Diversity and Bias" (e.g., how children develop racial and cutural identity and attitudes and the role of parents and families); (4) "Proactive Tools and Strategies to Help Children Resist Prejudice and Hate" (promising practices, programs, and activities); (5) "Guidelines for Intervention and Outreach" (e.g., the responsibility of school personnel and the role of law enforcement); (6) "Bibliographies" (e.g., resources for personal and professional development, for educators and youth service professionals, and parents and families); and (7) "References." (Contains 33 references.) (SM)
