Their “lessons encourage students to make local connections to global news stories, while strengthening skills such as critical thinking, media literacy, and communication.”
They’ve just released their top 10 lesson plans of the year and what a great list that reflects many of the issues our world has faced in the last year. The top 10 list includes:
- The Journey: My Family and How They Got Here
