Loose Lips

Have your middle and high schoolers analyze instances of celebrities using racial slurs or making prejudiced comments in public. After reading an article, they consider the roots and effects of prejudice and bias. As a class, they participate in a fishbowl discussion and write an apology speech for a celebrity who was caught using biased or offensive language. A great plan for kids who idolize our current celebrities without realizing that what they say has consequences!

Lesson Planet helps me search from such a large variety of creative and innovative teaching ideas from dedicated teachers. I am always looking for ideas to better teach my students and solicit the help of others in the education field. Many of the lessons guide students from concrete to abstract learning. Keep up the great work!
