Tomorrow I was going to have a meeting with the other social studies' chairs in my county, but because of more snow days, it won't be happening. But my kids still are going to have to do the assignment on the minimum wage for our next meeting.
We are working on a unit that looks at public opinion, elections and the media. So we will be using this great NYTimes article on the politics behind the minimum wage. Above is a John Green video he just did on the topic and here is what my students will be working on during my class away. As you see it hits a great deal of items we have covered and will soon tackle such as Congress, gridlock, executive orders, elections, media, etc.
