Turn learning into action. Now that your students have learned about these people, the places they’re from, and the issues that they face, here are tools to help make a difference.
The BYkids School Guides are designed to help teachers expand students’ experience of the BYkids films from passive watching to active discussion and deeply personalized learning.
Included in the below School Guides (downloadable PDFs) are questions to spur discussion, and to challenge students to think, reflect and gain insight.
These “Take Action” guides are blueprints to help teachers and students reflect and respond to the thematic questions brought up in each film.
