>auspices of the U.S. Department of Education and the Simon Wiesenthal
>Center of Los Angeles, California. This program, the Teaching Steps to
>Tolerance Program, will accept applications from all teachers in the

>teachers and library media specialists to Calif. during the summers of
>1998 and 1999 (approximately 100 a summer, 25 a week) to interact with
>our staff and their peers in education. These peers will come from all
>over the United States. The goal for these teachers while they are with
>us, is to create lessons for their classroom that teach tolerance. But
>these lessons will not be stand alones but will be integrated into their
>school curriculums. We will help them integrate multimedia (HyperStudio,
>laser discs, CDís, quicktime movies, sound, digital cameras, Internet)
>into their lessons. Of course, they will have our Museum and our vast
>library resources to use in the lesson-creating process.

>This network will consist of synchronous and asynchronous communication
>(i.e., e-mail, listservs, newsgroups, MUDing, video conferencing). The

>experience that will grow through continual communication fostered by
