Description: How can you create a community culture in which hate speech is unacceptable, both online and offline? Students learn the definition of hate speech and understand how it affects individuals, groups, and communities. Students learn to recognize hate speech by reading an article or by analyzing a brief video. They then explore school-wide solutions for addressing hate speech by role-playing a student mediation committee and creating guidelines for online and offline communities.
