Yesterday, I received an email that the 2012 DVD from Stossel in the Classroom is now ready to be shipped free to you. John Stossel, formerly of ABC News and now of Fox Business News, will mail you three free DVDs on current events topics, shipped free! We’ve received several DVDs from him over the past two years. Our teens and preteens really enjoy them.
The DVDs contain “segments from John Stossel’s television programs—specially selected by John for your classroom—to spark thoughtful, engaging, curriculum-driven class discussions.” They cover current events such as food irradiation, border patrol, endangered species and other controversial topics. The new 2012 DVD covers immigration, minimum wage, entrepreneurship and more.
There are also free downloadable and printable teacher guides at the Stossel in the Classroom site, “with suggested discussion topics and activities for your classroom.”
