At Learner, we've been talking a lot the last couple of years about how to teach about controversial issues and help students express their ideas with confidence and respect. We curated some resources that support discussing controversial issues on our blog (I added the NewseumEd resources you used today in the blog comments.): https://shar.es/1lLmQJ

Hi #ANEW16  participants! We look forward to seeing you Monday. Just a quick note about us: Annenberg Learner funds and distributes, via www.Learner.org, free classroom and teacher professional development resources in all subjects. We also get to support programs like Newseum Education's summer teacher institute "Primarily Digital." We spend a lot of time behind the computer, and are grateful for opportunities to meet with teachers face to face.

The discussions you have been having on this Google community have mirrored some of the discussions we have been having while completing research this year about teachers' needs for 21st Century classrooms. Especially related to using technology and helping students build confidence and connect their learning with their life experiences.

We look forward to learning from you. Have a wonderful time.

“If you present poetry as if it were castor oil, no one will be interested. Instead, teachers can approach it as something fun, and also explore poetry that connects to the students and their lives (as opposed to choosing poetry that they feel “should” be studied).” – Nikki Grimes http://bit.ly/1V9u5LL

This World Water Day, examine the stress on global water sources in The Habitable Planet, unit 8, “Water Resources.” http://bit.ly/ZEOKZ5 Scientists determine how much water humans actually use in section 5, World Demand for Water. Follow the U.S. and the United Nations’ attempts to regulate water use and improve water conditions in section 10, Major Laws and Treaties.
