Episode Three: Trigger Warnings

For today’s episode, Josh and Alex play the “Who Said It?” game with quotes from Donald Trump and Barack Obama. Then, the co-hosts discuss the inclusion of sensitive issues and trigger warnings in the classroom. Be sure to continue the conversation on social media! We’ve written follow up questions to facilitate the conversation.

This Week’s Follow Up Questions:

1) does the incorporation of sensitive issues in classes help or hinder student growth?

2) how do relationships between teachers and students affect what is included in classroom discussion?

3.) What is something you’d share to fellow teachers about this topic that you think is valuable?
