2017 AASL National Conference

Promoting Civil Discourse and Competent Media Consumers in Grade 8 through the Lens of Race and Identity

Nov 10, 2017 4:30pm ‐ Nov 10, 2017 5:30pm

Credits: None available.

Standard: $6.99
Members: $0.00


After a tumultuous year at Boston Latin School around the issue of race, the librarian and 8th grade history teacher created a unit focusing on identity, race, and civil discourse. We selected a variety of media for students to analyze making connections between identity, stereotypes and individual world views. A variety of media, tools, and strategies from Facing History were integrated to ensure maximum student engagement, promote discussion, and build a foundation for continued discussions.
