IMPORTANT NOTE about DISTANCE LEARNING | GOOGLE CLASSROOM:
When I first released this bundle, I provided Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Word, Google slides and PDF files combined in a zip file. This was version 1 (Aug 2019).
I have now converted my handouts into Google Docs / Google Slides so they can be easily used in Google Classroom assignments. This is version 2 (Aug 30, 2020).
Please check the product preview PDF which shows you exactly what you get when you get with each product.
Every classroom is slightly different in terms of how they operate under Covid-19 restrictions. If you have questions about whether you can adapt this product to your specific needs for face-to-face learning and remote learning, please ask me!
The following 6 Cs Resources have been converted into Distance Learning formats and are ready for Google Classroom:

- Folder 1. files to print and teach.
- Folder 2. handout files you can edit.
- Folder 3. files for Google Classroom.
When you buy this bundle:

..... Monday Nov 23, 2020 update: This month (November), I'm giving away $10 TpT gift cards to my followers. FOLLOW MY STORE to get free stuff. (Full details on my TpT Store Profile.)
⭐Teachers around the world have downloaded over 14,483 Educircles resources! Want to see what my slideshow lessons look like? Check out this FREE YouTube video where you can see me teach how to think critically when reading.
UH-OH! Conversations around US Politics, systemic discrimination, and Covid-19 are still CONTROVERSIAL. We have prolonged public debates with strong emotions running on both sides. Welcome to life!
How can we help students navigate these conversations without adding our own opinions as a layer of bias or influence? By teaching students SKILLS TO DEAL WITH CONTROVERSIAL ISSUES (as well as life and academic challenges), but not specifically using the US election, Black Lives Matter, or the pandemic as the subject matter.
- REMIND students HOW to be GOOD CITIZENS to help our school and global community.
- EXPLAIN the COMMUNICATION process so we communicate more effectively AND assertively - at school or from home.
- BUILD CHARACTER: develop resilience during uncertain, constantly changing times.
- THINK CRITICALLY: analyze information, form opinions, and make decisions based on logic and high-quality information instead of fear and emotion.
- EVALUATE whether this is SYSTEMIC DISCRIMINATION: Explore an issue and evaluate whether the system imposes unfair burdens on a group of people
- RECOGNIZE we live in a SEARCH BUBBLE - the information we get on search engines is personalized for us. It's easy to see stories that confirm our view because we are given stories that the search algorithms think we want to see based on our previous search habits.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT BUNDLES
1. I already purchased a resource included in the bundle. Can I get a refund?
YES! ... as long as you purchased the duplicate resource within one year of the original purchase!
Check out the TpT Refund Help Page regarding duplicate purchases. (It also has a link to start the refund process):
- "Duplicate Purchase— You purchase the same resource twice. Example: You purchase a resource contained in a specific bundle and then later purchase that bundle within one year of the original purchase."
2. Do you have a preview or lesson sample?
The bundle itself doesn't have a preview on the product listing, but if you go into any of the individual products that are included in the bundle (i.e. 1 week of CHARACTER building), you can see a detailed "READ ME FIRST" file in the preview that includes screenshots and detailed descriptions of everything that you get.
What I would recommend you do is go to the product listing for one of the chapters that interests you the most:
- Fun Activities & Ice Breakers (6Cs of Education)
- 1 week of CHARACTER
- 1 week of CITIZENSHIP
- 2 weeks of COMMUNICATION
- 1 week of COLLABORATION
- 5 weeks of CRITICAL THINKING
- 2 weeks of CREATIVITY / INNOVATION
- Challenge Task: HOW TO TEACH 21st CENTURY SKILLS to Students
Check out the READ ME FIRST preview file. If you're interested, then buy that single resource - then you get a sense of what the complete bundle will look like. (Each unit in the bundle has the same style and format but different content.)
Once you get a single product, if you like what you see, then you can go ahead and buy the full bundle and get a refund from TpT for the single resource that you bought.
Several teachers have started with a single 6C chapter and then upgraded to the bundle. The TpT refund policy will give you a refund for a duplicate purchase (i.e. of a resource contained in a specific bundle) - as long as you get the bundle within a year of the original purchase.
We've had many refunds go through the system from people upgrading to bundles which is awesome because the bundle is hands down the most cost-efficient way to get these lessons.
3. I bought the bundle and tried to download a zipped file it but when I tried to extract the files, it says I need to have files in the folder to extract!
Before July 16, 2020, this bundle product came as a zipped file that included all of the units (zipped files). It was a huge file around 350 MB.
If your computer didn't download the large zipped file completely or if there was a glitch in downloading, the zipped file might not have worked properly.
As of July 16, 2020, this bundle product is now in the standard TpT bundle format - which means, once you buy the bundle, you get access to all of the included products. You just go to that product and download a smaller zipped file (or better yet, click the TpT button and get a copy of all of the files in your own Google Drive.)
If you have any questions, feel free to ask away!
