Each Wednesday, we shine a spotlight on five student activities that support a broad range of learners. In this week’s roundup of accessible activities, we invite students to learn about Indigenous environmental activism, recommend new music, tell us a story, closely analyze a photograph and watch a short film about a beachfront haven for Black families.
1. Learn about everyday people fighting to protect their land.
This Lesson of the Day focuses on the predominantly Indigenous residents of the village of Narsaq, Greenland, who stood up for their home and fought outside mining companies. Then, students will share about a time when they took an action for something they believed in.
2. Share the new music you’re currently listening to.
In this Student Opinion, students read five new music recommendations from the Times’s chief pop music critic. Then, they share what they’re listening to now and how they find new music.
3. Watch a film and think about community.
Our Film Club brings students into the world of New York’s Sag Harbor, a community that became a refuge for African American families. After watching the film, students respond to the question: What communities protect, affirm and nurture you?
