Teaching tolerance and acceptance

Tolerance and acceptance are two of the most important life skills for people to learn, yet they are just as frequently overlooked within the teaching system. Let’s take a quick look at some of the key ways to encourage a tolerant and accepting mindset:

  • Offer real-world examples.

Students need to hear examples of tolerance and acceptance, in order to understand the concepts in the real world. Be sure you have a couple of examples where these ideas worked for the benefit of all.

  • Create an inclusive atmosphere.

Creating an atmosphere where everyone can share their viewpoints without fear of judgement is a great step towards encouraging a tolerant and accepting culture.

  • Fight against intolerance.

Focus on ways you can peacefully fight against intolerance in your own life, as this not only helps society as a whole, but also offers you teachable examples to share with others.
