Are you a K-12 educator who is teaching subjects or programs relating to civics in schools and libraries? In schools, they involve social studies, civics, government, history, geography, psychology, economics, etc. In libraries, they involve media literacy programs, student research, teen programs, book clubs. How can you use the 10 Questions in your situation? Here are a few examples educators might use for starter activities. Educators can use the Ten Questions to analyze a historical event such as a lunch counter sit-in in the civil rights movement or a contemporary social movement. 10 Questions become discussion prompts themselves. Educators can use them for Book Discussion in Libraries or Debate on Controversial Issues. Educators can use the 10Questions for Conversation Starter. Or, some of you might think that learning all ten questions might be a little overwhelming. Then, why don't you use the "Pick Two" method? Many resources are available to support the use of the 10 Questions in both school and library settings. They include the 10 Questions Primer, Teacher Guide, Videos, a stand-along learning module, student-led civics cases, library-based civic learning cases, and the DKP's Grade 8 Year-logn Civics Curriculum.
