Promoting Tolerance and Respect for Diversity in Early Childhood
Publication Date: May 2008
This annotated bibliography includes research and policy books, articles, reports, and other resources on diversity, tolerance, and respect for diversity (DTRD) education for children younger than 10 years of age, and their parents, teachers, and/or caregivers, published since the 1990s. A variety of disciplines in the social sciences is represented. Resources aimed exclusively at practitioners and parents have not been included. The bibliography presents resources developed in the United States or abroad. Each citation is followed by a brief description, and an indication regarding the type of diversity (general vs. specific – class, race, sex/gender, sexual orientation, etc.): and whether the focus on DTRD is explicit (in other words: prejudice reduction, diversity, tolerance, etc.) or indirect (such as identity, multicultural education, socialization).
