I don’t discuss politics much in class. I did on Wednesday (after the elections), but more with the intent of modeling polite civil discourse than persuasive argument.
Today’s quiz was a bit short, so I grabbed a couple of images from zefrank’s latest project and threw them up in a slide deck.
It’s not quite provoking the discussion I’d hoped. My kids can’t seem to wrap their head around the idea of reconciliation or empathy.
Maybe I’m teaching the wrong things.
