Democracy Now! is Used to Engage Student’s Critical Thinking and Writing Skills

RSS

“I have used a written interview from Democracy Now! as part of a unit on Social Change that I do in an advanced writing class. I also plan to use other interviews for listening comprehension exercises in an advanced oral communication skills class. My experience is that if I give the students real social, cultural and political information, it enhances learning and fulfills one of our student learning outcomes of helping students become responsible community members.”
