Product Description
Use this engaging 21st century TED talk activity to get students thinking about our diverse society by focusing on multiple perspectives given by societal "outsiders." This activity builds character and empathy (so important in today's sociopolitical climate) while targeting important analysis, writing, speaking and listening skills! This activity works well on its own, but pairs well with "Black Men and Public Space" by Brent Staples or any piece of multi-cultural literature.

Students will form their own inquiry questions about "insiders and outsiders" in society using the "QFT" process (handouts and rules/pacing slideshow provided), choose three TED talks from the listening board to watch, and write a response synthesizing the different perspectives and connecting to their inquiry question.
