Teaching Social Issues in the Classroom
Start the Conversation
Students are constantly being exposed to the big issues of our time - critical issues that eventually make their way into the classroom. Teach your students how to engage these topics and make a difference.
Start with a Design for Change podcast based on the topic you want to introduce to your class.
A Simple Student-Led Process for Creating Change
Pair one of our podcast episodes with a current topic/event that may have come up during class, or that you feel is valuable for students to learn.
Ask students to take notes during the podcast about facts they learned, questions they have, and how it made them feel.
As a class, discuss the notes your students took and help draw conclusions about where the world is now, and what they can do to improve it.
