Reflection: Real World Applications Exploring A Real World Application Of Theme - Section 3: Applying Theme To Real World

 

I feel I should acknowledge the overwhelming liberal-ness of my student population in terms of exploring the nature of stereotyping and the Trayvon Martin case.  Taking this into account helped me decide to use the essay from Salon.com.  I advise all teachers considering this lesson to allow your knowledge of your students and their backgrounds to help you decide if this is a direction in which you feel comfortable going.
