Black History Month: Teaching Ideas
- Teachable Instant: Everyday Hero. Students learn about the African American girl who refused to give up her seat on the bus, months before Rosa Parks touched off the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott.
- Teachable Instant: Order v. Justice. Students consider King's letter from a Birmingham jail in light of current events.
- The Fight for Voting Rights, From Selma in 1965 to Today. Students examine a primary source document to help them understand why so few southern blacks could vote in 1965.
- On Martin Luther King. Collected TeachableMoment lessons on Martin Luther King, Jr., and the movement he led.
… And introducing Teachable Instant
We’ve added a new feature to TeachableMoment: Teachable Instant. Every Monday morning, we offer a new short classroom activity to engage students in a topic in the news or on the calendar – in just 5 to 15 minutes. Other Teachable Instants this past month include: Who Owns the World's Wealth?, Obama's Free College Tuition Proposal, and Global Divestment Day.
In the Circle: Quiet Participation
"Our students have plenty of people in their lives talking to them or at them, far fewer people who practice listening. They have a need to be heard into speaking." Read staff developer Marieke van Woerkom's latest blogpost.
