Your high schoolers may be tabula rasa about political theory until they learn about John Locke. Use a thought-provoking video to teach them about his philosophies on the natural rights of all humans, religious tolerance, and of course, the concept of tabula rasa.
- Ask pupils to write a persuasive essay arguing for or against Locke's views
- Flip your classroom by assigning learners to watch the video as homework before discussion during class time
- The fourth in a series of 13 exploring government
- May need to censor some images
- The narration uses charismatic language and speaks in an interesting way, keeping the attention of even the most distracted students
- Appeals to many learning styles
- Connections made to philosophy, education, and psychology create the potential for an integrated lesson
