"Climate change."  "Getting Alberta oil to tidewater."  Students hear a lot about the issues of our day.  Teachers know the power of connecting student learning to current events - but what to do when the issue you've chosen is controversial and might get some parents upset?  In this workshop, we'll review best teaching practices, show a few examples of powerful project-based and inquiry learning, mention some great teaching resources – and we’ll discuss classroom-ready strategies to help you 'go there' with your students.
