In Immigration in the 21st Century, students learn about why people immigrate and how immigration impacts communities around the world. This week we celebrate a PenPal who has done a great job of sharing her perspective and empathizing with the experiences of others. Congratulations to our PenPal of the Week, Karol P. from Mexico!
Did you know that over 80% of middle schoolers can’t tell the difference between a news article and sponsored content on social media? This problem doesn’t just affect students in America. We’ve heard from teachers all around the world who want to help their students identify fake news, which is why we’ve created our newest project Facts, Opinions, and Fake News.
Whether students are learning with peers in their classroom or around the world, they need to be prepared to be safe, respectful, and responsible citizens. That’s why we’ve prepared some activities that you can do offline to prepare your students to be successful online!
Our new 21st Century Skills Toolkit is full of mini-lessons that you can use to help students learn about internet safety and responsible online behavior. From creating a username and password to searching for information online to how to prevent cyberbullying, we’ve got you covered with downloadable activities that you can use with your students.
