The Eyes on the Prize documentary is fantastic. The Bill of Rights Institute is a great resource. I also use a movie called Separate but Equal that is historically accurate and very entertaining. The only problem is it is a very long film.

I like to go more in depth on the stories of Emmitt Toll and Claudette Colvin. They are really engaging for my students since they're both teenagers as well. Thinking about these events from the point of view of another teenager usually hits them pretty hard.

Recently incorporated the biography of Claudette Colvin into my lessons, was really well received by my students

I love showing "Thurgood" starring Lawrence Fishburne.

Show them the protest scenes from Forrest Gump, from when he shows up at the rally to when Jenny gets on the bus. It really shows the scope of the protests and can lead into discussions about CR in general.

How do you best support your students who do not speak English? I have four ELL’s in my 6th grade ELA class and they don’t receive push-in or pull-out Bilingual support during my class. Do you pull them for small group to provide instruction separately or do you just try to use google translate to translate your lessons and the work? Any best practices? I’d love some help.

Any tips for note taking? My biggest struggle is retaining information communicated verbally. To compound the issue, I’m a millennial and was never taught note taking, short hand, or cursive (outside a week long lesson to write our names) in school. It takes me forever to write out notes and while I’m writing I miss everything that’s being said. I have no problem putting in the work to learn techniques but can’t find helpful resources.

I teach some drum lessons on the side and was wondering what a good range for a 30 min lesson would be? For those I’ve taught, the kids are typically in elementary school, so I’m getting them the basics. It’s been fun seeing some of them perform in talent shows even within the year! Curious what everyone thinks the market range is for good (not professional) drum lessons are?

What was the hardest lesson you’ve learned as a product designer?

I’m looking at lessons with a pro. They offer packs of 30 min (6-pack) and 60 min (3-pack) sessions. Is there a benefit to one over the other? Is 30 too short or 60 too long?

I’ve never taken lessons before, just played my whole life. I’m a mid 80s golfer trying to get more consistent and break into the high 70s.

Any suggestions or ideas on working with teachers who are less than enthusiastic about utilizing technology as a means to bring “more” to their lessons?
