Selecting Resources for Viewpoint Diversity
TEACHING VIEWPOINT DIVERSITY| COURSE 3
As teachers, we understand that our lessons are often only as good as the resources and materials we are able to use to meet the learning goals. When ensuring we have addressed viewpoint diversity in the classroom, the selection of materials becomes more important than ever. We’ve practiced identifying different stakeholders, different points of view they may hold, and how to charitably interpret their point of view without necessarily agreeing with them. Now we’ll bring those skills together to consider how we help students see all appropriate perspectives in lessons in history and current events.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
Review ways in which to bring in multiple perspectives on historical events
Outline the 360o perspective for supporting teaching current events
Identify a topic and create a text set to support the teaching of that topic
