course was written to meet local needs and was encouraged by the Vermont Department of Education. Its prime
focus is the elimination of prejudice. Topics included are diverse perspectives, communication, cultural identity
and values, diverse communities, history, vocabulary, definitions, contemporary discrimination and racism, and
the impact of bias on the community.
