Teaching Idea for Helping Students Create a Better Future

Facing History and Ourselves is offering a new teaching idea, “Reflecting on George Floyd’s Death and Police Violence Towards Black Americans,” to support teachers in helping students understand how the events of the past have led to this moment and guiding students to see within themselves the power to make choices that will create a better future for us all. Facing History asks educators to begin with themselves, reflecting on their own emotions and perspectives, and to face their biases: What emotions do the recent events surrounding the death of George Floyd raise for you? What perspectives will you bring to your reflection on these events with your students? What can you do to ensure that students with a range of perspectives are supported in your reflection? As this story develops, how will you continue to learn alongside your students?
