Of Tolerance

  • Don Fawkes


Introduction: This brief paper grows out of a workshop that I conducted on 5 November 1996 at Seabrook Elementary School, Fayetteville, North Carolina, and includes contributions from Fourth Grade Schoolteachers, Tina Cashwell, Martha Faircloth, and Mona McFadyen. We used materials that I adapted from Lipman (1996) as models and developed what follows. We begin with a discussion plan on uses and senses of tolerance, and then turn to What Tolerance Means to Me, which is intended to combine creative and critical thinking.
