Teaching (Social Respons) w Humanities

Thom Yorke of Radiohead

The humanities can be an effective point of entry to teach potentially difficult topics like social responsibility in the midst of formal curriculum. For instance, Radiohead’s “All I Need” (lyrics here) could be used in economics courses to navigate the fair v. free trade debate and considerations related to globalization

Exemplar Q’s for simultaneously teaching both with and about digital media:

  1. How is color being used to convey meaning?
  2. How is life different for each child?
  3. How are the shoes positioned to tell a story and make a point?

Further, you can turn the CIA World Factbook to compare and contrast different countries.

Secondly,  take a Political Spectrum test:
