Are discussions about #MeToo making their way into your classroom? Do you want to raise news topics like the Muslim ban, immigration, and “taking a knee,” but are not sure how? Young people hear about controversial issues in the news constantly; they want to and should be part of the conversation. Using ADL’s anti-bias framework, interactive strategies, and curriculum content about current events, gain confidence and skills to turn “teachable moments” into enriching classroom conversations.
