Satire for Solutions: Laugh While You Learn
BlackIssuesISSUES is a curriculum and methodology infusing satire, polling data and an invented language to explore social justice issues while activating media literacy, civic engagement, and student agency. This amalgam of farce and socio-political truth leads to Socratic Seminars about issues and solutions. The performance and workshop show educators how to use humor and creativity to research issues, write monologues/sketches and envision a more beautiful and equitable world, one laugh at a time.
