"Never doubt that a small group of
thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

    Welcome to the CrossroadS Web Quest. Crossroads is a course designed to offer high school students a variety of experiences to increase their level of tolerance for their fellow human beings. This Web Quest is designed to enhance the course, offer students an opportunity to explore issues of tolerance individually or in groups; cross the disciplines of language arts, social studies, and history; and allow students to react, reflect, and respond to these issues in a personal and significant way. Students should leave the webquest enlightened, thoughtful, uncomfortable, and confused. Teachers wishing to use this webquest are welcome, but are encouraged to preview all of the content carefully; there may be those of the opinion that some topics and graphics are unsuitable to some students.

    Where, after all,
    do universal human rights begin?
    In small places, close to home -
    So close and so small
    that they cannot be seen on any maps
    of the world...

    Unless these rights have meaning there,
    they have little meaning anywhere.
                -Eleanor Roosevelt
