Top Documentaries on-line... FREE

Just found this site. Please preview the documentary to ensure it is appropriate for your classroom. (Of course!!!!)

Social Activism Unit Activities

Just found this awesome resource for teaching satire and social activism. It uses a video titled, "Yes Men Fix the World". Here are the teacher resources/lessons to go with the video. This documentary is better for high school audiences. However please preview in advance (obviously) to get a sense who the Yes Men are. The pranks they pull can be examined critically and focus on Global Issues. Very interesting... You may need to explore some of these political issues with your students in advance.

So far still searching for the video on-line....
