Justice Is Blind, Colorblind That Is

It's so interesting to see kids respond to articles about education. To start the day, prompt learners to discuss the words colorblindness and diversity. Then, split your class in two and have one side read an article from 2007 and the other read an article from 1954. There are a list of prompting questions for each group to complete. Each group then creates a summary and breaks into groups once more to create a jigsaw. A lot of organization is needed for this lesson, but high schoolers in particular will benefit from the thought-provoking questions.

I have used several hands-on lessons that have helped to engage my students in topics that may have been mundane to them. I do not have a text book or resources for many of the topics that I teach, and it is nice to find so many resources in one place.
