These discussions work well for bringing The Glass Castle's social issues to life. My school uses Canvas, so I copied and pasted these discussion prompts and videos into a discussion board on Canvas. You could do something similar or you could simply assign the discussions as a paper assignment and/or Google classroom assignment.
The 3 discussions are topics of: homelessness, parenting styles (effects of neglect), and poverty. Each discussion features TED talks that pertain to the social issues. 2 of the discussions implement the BHH Reader (book, head, and heart).
I hope you enjoy!
