Teachers have to find all kinds of creative ways to reach out to students and help them learn.
For middle school teachers, who have to teach children during one of their most awkward phases of life, it’s especially difficult to get students engaged. (I should know, I used to teach them!) And teachers always need to keep in mind that students come from different backgrounds and take the time to really think through the consequences of each lesson.
One middle school teacher in Virginia took engaging her students to an awful and completely insensitive place, and now, a parent is speaking out.
Tamika Derozen says her son was part of a group of African-American students who were told they had to be slaves in a history lesson skit. Learn more details in the video below.
