Our lessons on Garner and Brown, collected

 

Only rarely does a teachable moment come along that is as powerful as the one we're in right now. Ever since the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, teachers have been encouraging their students to share their feelings and thoughts, discuss, and learn more about what's in and behind the news. (See this CBS News video of students in our Restore360 Program talking passionately about these issues.) 

We are also helping teachers take advantage of this moment through TeachableMoment.org (as this AP story about teaching on Ferguson recently noted).  At least two school districts - in Washington, DC and Madison, WI - have used our TM materials as the basis for teacher guides on discussing this subject.
