Friends, today’s post is brought to you by our program coordinator and all-around excellent teacher, Ms. Peggy Renihan.
During back to school, many teachers facilitate activities designed to create a safe learning environment. Recent current events may have students discussing sensitive issues. The activity provided in this post may, we hope, help facilitate conversations.
It is based on the an article from the Washington Post about teaching the issues related to the sometimes acrimonious public debates we face today .
(A special Thank You to our own Val McVey for finding and sharing interesting and useful resources.)
There are some thought-provoking resources in the article that may be helpful. We reviewed most of the links and suggest that you view the videos and read the articles before sharing with students to ensure age-appropriateness.
Knowing that most people appreciate a readymade activity, we (Editor’s Note: we meaning Peggy!) modified the resources and information from the article to be ready for classroom use.Click on the link here, Talking about Hate, to access the lesson.
