Required textbook reading. Maybe I didn't have the tolerance for it because I just finished up an entire semester's worth of anti-bias in my Psych of Prejudice class. Either way, I couldn't get through three pages at a time without falling asleep, no matter how awake and alert I was. Some suggestions and activities are totally worth checking into, but overall I found the book to be redundant.

Another textbook. Great for learning how to plan lessons for children that isn't biased. Explains how to teach children to accept everyone for who they are, and to learn more about other cultures than what they are usually exposed to.
