Week 7: October 12 - 16

This week we'll be wrapping our discussion on the Black Lives Matter Movement by looking at two key debates that the movement has sparked: 1) Should police officers be in schools? and 2) Should we reform, defund, or abolish the police. We will be starting our first major assessment: a visual essay in which you answer one of the questions above and create an infographic that explains your thoughts. I'll explain this assignment towards the end of the week, but we'll be building background on these questions throughout the week. You've got 4 assignments to work on (detailed in Google Classroom):

1) Intro to Police in Schools Video Response

2) Intro to Police Abolition Video Response

3) Practicing Evaluate Annotations with "Do Police Belong in Schools? | Pro/Con"

4) Graphic Organizer for Visual Essay
