Poster #731

Are you looking for a classroom poster that teaches tolerance? Poster #731 may be exactly what you’re looking for.

Over 50 years ago, Robert F. Kennedy announced the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., and his message is on this beautiful classroom poster that teaches tolerance to a new generation. The message about acceptance, humanity, and compassion is as needed now as it was then. Created by the education experts at Youth Change Workshops, this important poster is a must have for any classroom wall, school hallway, or counselor’s office. The lovely design will look perfect and make an impact in any classroom, counselor’s office, community center, church, or after-school program.

The words on this pretty and power classroom poster say: “What we need is not division; what need is not hatred, but love and compassion toward one another.” All teachers try to impart lessons about tolerance to their students, but it can be challenging to cut through all the other messages out there. Poster #731 is a 24/7 reminder about the consequences of hate, bigotry, and division. This classroom tolerance poster also presents a stark warning to students to not repeat the past. “Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: To tame the savageness of man and to make gentle the life of this world.” With this lesson in front of them, students will make better, more thoughtful decisions in how they treat each other.

Today’s youth needs to learn the importance of tolerance. They also need to learn what their role is in making lasting change in our world. By bringing to life the words of RFK and connecting them to the tragic event of the assassination of MLK, students learn how to be future leaders. Teachers have the unique opportunity of showing students how the past connects to the present. This important classroom poster also can teach students how their choices to increase tolerance, love, and compassion can impact the world for generations to come.
