Cross-curricular Language Arts and Social Studies for middle and high school. Each lesson goes with a different episode of TED Talks: “We Need to Talk About an Injustice” by Bryan Stevenson, “Color Blind or Color Brave” by Mellody Hobson, and “The Danger of Silence” by Clint Smith. Links to the talks are provided. These fascinating speakers will captivate your students and encourage reflection on black history as well as issues of social and legal injustices.
Included are 55 pages of engaging lesson resources with detailed teachers' directions. Students learn how to write a motion for court, write explanatory and reflective texts, make mini-posters for a class banner, and much more. Answer keys and scoring guides are included.
These lessons are relevant year-round, and work great for Black History Month. Click on the preview and check out more details! Your students will love these lessons!
