“Making Sense of…” Guides

In an effort to cut through the seemingly endless stream of news we’re faced with, IDHE periodically releases short discussion guides, called “Making Sense of…” These short pieces are meant 1) as a way to become quickly acquainted with an issue, 2) see what people are reading on the topic, and 3) as a way to begin a conversation, using some discussion framing questions. These guides are meant for use by anyone, but in particular we encourage use by college faculty (in classrooms and in disciplinary clubs) and in co-curricular campus settings.

How would a campus best use this resource?
Use these guides as a framework for conversation around topics currently in the news.
Learning outcomes
– Coalition partners will be able to start a conversation with students and other campus partners around a fast-moving issue in the news.
