    I am student teaching 2nd grade and have to do a unit plan for 5 days. My teacher mentioned that the school had four principals,one for each grading period, that they try to teach their students. The one for this period and for my unit plan is tolerence (of eachother, and just people in general). I was wondering if anyone had an ideas. Also any books. At first I was thinking of doing a different type of people each day (i.e one day talk about being tolerant for ppl based race, young/old, disabilities...)I really am just having a hard time starting. Usually once I get started I'm ok...any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.....

    Oh we already talked a little bit about MLK /Rosa Parks/ and Ruby Bridges around MLK day...so I want to stay away from just using those ppl.

    You have four principals? Or four principles?

    I recommend taking a look at Teach Tolerance online. You should be able to google it. They will send you all sorts of free classroom materials about tolerance. There are videos and DVDs, lesson plans, and classroom sets of books.

    Haha...thanks Cassie. I was confused too. Four Principals. I had never heard of a school rotating Principals for each grading period. Hmm...... I actually didn't catch that it might be principles until Cassie mentioned it. :p

    Can you plan for a real world project and go out into the community on a field trip for the last day and do some community service?
