Product Description
This TED Talk lesson is intended to be used with Kandice Sumner's TED Talk, How America's Public Schools Keep Kids in Poverty.

********************

From TED:
Why should a good education be exclusive to rich kids? Schools in low-income neighborhoods across the US, specifically in communities of color, lack resources that are standard at wealthier schools — things like musical instruments, new books, healthy school lunches and soccer fields — and this has a real impact on the potential of students. Kandice Sumner sees the disparity every day in her classroom in Boston. In this inspiring talk, she asks us to face facts — and change them.

********************

This lesson is appropriate for high school-level Social Studies and English classes.

********************

I use TED Talks to introduce new topics or to supplement a prepared unit. Most TED Talks are less than 18 minutes long, allowing time to watch the TED Talk in class, complete the TED Talk video guide and engage in small or large-group discussion about the topic. Depending on the complexity and/or interest-level, some TED Talk lessons may take longer than one class period to complete. If your schedule does not allow for more than one class period to be spent on a TED Talk lesson, most TED Talks include an interactive transcript tool which is extremely helpful for students working independently or finishing TED Talk assignments at home as homework. My students LOVE the interactive transcript feature.
