The Teaching Tolerance Award for Excellence in Culturally Responsive Teaching
The Teaching Tolerance Award for Excellence in Culturally Responsive Teaching recognizes educators whose knowledge and skill make them particularly successful at meeting the needs of students from racially, ethnically, and culturally diverse backgrounds.
The program plans to recognize five outstanding teachers at a ceremony in Washington, D.C., in December 2011. Each will be presented with an award of $1,000. Prior to the ceremony, in Fall 2011, the selected teachers will be videotaped in their classrooms as models of effective practice. This footage will be used to enhance teacher preparation and professional development nationally.
All P-12 teachers are invited to apply for the award. Applications must be received by June 1, 2011. An expert panel of teachers and researchers will select the five awardees.
