The Office of Human Relations, Diversity & Equity has created an array of short, student-facing Push & Play lessons for educators to utilize in their advisory classes. These lessons may serve as a starting place for educators who wish to adapt them for their unique student populations.
Please peruse our library of lessons and share with your students. Have an idea for a great lesson or want to share one of your own? E-mail our resident Push & Play content creator here.

They were adapted by the Office of Human Relations, Diversity & Equity. Click here to view this resource.
