The Challenge of Diversity
Grades 9–12

Sample Lesson (PDF)

diversity.jpgThe third volume of the Challenge series, this 72-page supplementary text provides an in-depth look at issues of racial and ethnic diversity in the United States. The book is divided into five units:

Unit 1: The Ideal of Equality focuses on the constitutional and legal doctrines that developed to ensure minority groups equal protection under the law.

Unit 2: A Diverse Nation provides a brief historical review of the experiences and struggles of various ethnic groups during the 19th and first half of the 20th century.

Unit 3: Civil Rights Movement covers the turbulent period between 1954 and 1975 that changed America forever. It examines the social protests, landmark Supreme Court decisions, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965, and Mexican-American activism.

Unit 4: Issues and Policies explores current issues of diversity —affirmative action, bilingual education, multiculturalism, reparations, hate crimes, and the extent of progress in race relations.

Unit 5: Bringing Us Together tells of governmental and grassroots efforts to bring people together and provides students with ideas and resources for service-learning projects.

A separate teacher’s guide provides instructions for interactive lessons based on the text. Also included are Civil Conversations on provocative issues, Diversity Checklists showing students how to approach issues of diversity, and Profiles of important historical and contemporary figures.
