Writing and discussion are important parts of the classroom. This activity gets students thinking and talking about wealth.
The product includes 10 quotes about wealth from notable thinkers like Confucius to celebrities like Oprah and asks students to explain the quote, talk about how it applies to their lives, and asks the class to discuss students' responses. I have also included some questions for you to help generate conversations and some ideas that may come out in your students' responses. The product is meant to generate discussion and get students to think critically about wealth.
When I used this in a high school sociology class it generated a lot of thoughtful discussion. I could see my students grappling with their preconceived notions of what it meant to be wealthy.
