This could be a good time to talk about media literacy--you could talk about how to evaluate sources and recognizing fallacies, and even show some examples and evaluate what makes them good or bad. (Potentially without even calling out specific news sources, but just by pulling quotes or examples.) It doesn't necessarily have to be political, but you can show why "Facebook news" can be unreliable and that there are better sources.

Student rights while in school.

I second the voting information. Even middle schoolers can be engaged in this topic. I'm working on my own "intro" item for fall, and voting and student rights seem to consistently pop up in this new COVID-19 environment.

Any advice to terminate a buyers agreement with an agent? I’m a first time homebuyer and made a mistake of signing one (lesson learned). The agent is currently refusing to sign a release to terminate the contract and the broker won’t return my calls. I was upset with the service being provided by the agent and felt like he was not acting in my best interest.

Thanks in advance.
