    A teach-in is an opportunity to promote dialogue about current political affairs outside the classroom and regular curriculum, but still within an academic setting. Current Events are teachable moments for social justice. When teaching social justice through current events, explore opinions and perspective, clarify social justice themes, use interactive technology, and encourage activism.
