2022 — The Year-in-Review

2022 — The Year in Review:

2022 came to an end, but the relevancy of the year's top headlines hasn't. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of resources on these compelling topics you can use to discuss the past, present, and potential future impact of immigration, student debt forgiveness, free speech, and inflation. You'll also find a list of 2022’s most viewed Both Sides of the Issue installments.

Both Sides of the Issues
Both Sides: Addressing Racism

Addressing Racism:

Some argue teaching anti-racism is necessary to counter racism, others say that the approach does more harm than good. Use our latest Both Sides of the Issue installment to discuss approaches to countering racism in the U.S. and the role, if any, schools should play in educating students on racism/anti-racism.

Both Sides: Rich and Poor

Rich and Poor:

Or, is wealth creation possible? Should we be more concerned with income inequality or poverty rates? Is there a difference?
