Create free interactive timelines. Microsoft Teacher Resources. Teaching Tolerance: Classroom Resources. This lesson explores the debate about whether public schools, which typically close on major Christian and Jewish holidays, should also shutter for important celebrations in other faiths.

Teaching Tolerance: Classroom Resources

This debate is relevant in many cities, districts and states. The activities ask students to think critically about the question and identify multiple points of view before forming their own opinions and proposing possible solutions and/or compromises. This lesson is based on the following news stories: “Should public schools close for Muslim holidays?” — published in the Christian Science Monitor before a recent Eid al-Adha, or Feast of the Sacrifice, one of the biggest holidays of the year for Muslims, and “New York City Adds 2 Muslim Holy Days to Public School Calendar,” published in the New York Times after officials in New York City announced school would be closed to mark two Muslim holidays.

Social networking sites such as "Facebook" and "MySpace" have been subject to much recent debate within the educational community.

Faceworking: Exploring Students' Education-Related Use of "Facebook", Learning, Media and Technology, 2009-Jun

Whilst growing numbers of educators celebrate the potential of social networking to (re)engage learners with their studies, others fear that such applications compromise and disrupt young people's engagement with "traditional" education provision. With these ongoing debates in mind, the current paper presents an in-depth qualitative analysis of the "Facebook" "wall" activity of 909 undergraduate students in a UK university.
