ABSTRACT
The authors suggest that teachers address the shooting of African American teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida as a way for students to discuss contemporary and controversial issues in the classroom. Events such as the Martin case or the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 allow students to respond to world events and ask questions, according to the article. The authors also argue that societal issues such as race and social justice will increase student engagement.
