International Educator;Feb2014, Vol. 28 Issue 3, p6
The article discusses how the creation of a Wall of Intolerance at Graded, the American School of Sao Paolo, Brazil strengthened the bond between its international students. Aside from bullying and harassment, the scheme aims to address issues relating to the use of racist and derogatory words by students. It explores how students were able to reflect on words with negative connotations and the participation of both students and faculty members in the creation of a new world map for the school.
