Although mostly America-centric, some of these videos would be good starting points for many discussions. For example, the one about increasing (or ongoing?) race discrimination in American schools could be paired with the unit on the Civil Rights movement. Or Spike Lee’s short documentary about amazing 13-year-old female athlete Mo’ne Davis could be used in Phys Ed as a way to inspire students but also begin a discussion on gender equality (or not) in sports.
Any other ideas?

Weaving stories of social justice—especially those that show why we need to keep fighting for equality—into lessons keeps students asking questions.
