Product Description
This worksheet is intended to be used with the Diane Wolk-Rogers
TED Talk, A Parkland Teacher’s Homework for Us All.

From TED: Diane Wolk-Rogers teaches history at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, site of a horrific school shooting on Valentine's Day 2018. How can we end this senseless violence? In a stirring talk, Wolk-Rogers offers three ways Americans can move forward to create more safety and responsibility around guns -- and invites people to come up with their own answers, too. Above all, she asks us to take a cue from the student activists at her school, survivors whose work for change has moved millions to action. "They shouldn't have to do this on their own," Wolk-Rogers says. "They're asking you to get involved."

The Ted talk, worksheet, and follow-up discussion can be completed in one class period or the video and worksheet can be assigned as homework with the discussion taking place the following day.

This lesson can be used in most high school Social Studies classes including: Current Events, Social Problems, Social Psychology, Civics, American Government, etc. It would also be suitable for a Public Speaking class.

TED lessons can be used as mini-lessons or to supplement a prepared unit. I often assign TED lessons as make-up work or extra credit. TED Talks also make great lesson plans on "sub days."
