This resource includes both printable worksheets and a Google Drive (paperless) option. This TED Talk worksheet is intended to be used with Jorge Ramos' TED Talk, Why Journalists Have an Obligation to Challenge Power.
The TED Talk, worksheet, and class discussion can be completed in one class period or assigned as homework. TED Talk lessons also make great "Sub Day" lessons or one-day lessons for in-between units!
This TED Talk and worksheet are appropriate for a high school-level Social Studies or Spanish class (the TED Talk is delivered in Spanish with subtitles available).
You can kick Jorge Ramos out of your press conference (as Donald Trump infamously did in 2015), but you can never silence him. A reporter for more than 30 years, Ramos believes that a journalist's responsibility is to question and challenge those in power. In this compelling talk -- which earned him a standing ovation midway through -- Ramos explains why, in certain circumstances, he believes journalists must take sides. (In Spanish with English subtitles.)
