The Privilege and Identity Project is a collaboration between two educators, a high school teacher and a college professor, whose aim is to provide information and guidance for high school teachers who wish to be able to understand, discuss, and promote diversity and equality education across race, gender, sexuality, and social class. Central to our project is the role that “privilege” – both overt and covert – plays in ordering interactions in everyday life. This project was funded by a grant from the E.E. Ford Foundation through University School of Nashville.
Throughout this site, you’ll find free resources for teachers and students to explore the dynamic interplay between identity and privilege. Don’t know where to start? Try here.
