Creator:

Mr. Strickland and his 7th Grade Citizenship class


School/Organization:

Wilkerson Middle School; Birmingham City Schools

Overview:

Isms can be both benign and quite harmful.  Capitalism and Catholicism arguably never hurt anyone.  Racism and sexism though can be damaging to a community and certainly to a school.  Working with the standards established through the YWCAs Heritage Panel workshop, Mr. Strickland and his students have created an easy to understand primer on the harmful -isms we should all be on the lookout for in and around all of us.
