In-Class Exercise 1: Student Loan Debt

Purpose: To further explore the topic of student loan debt which students identified as one of the issues that they are worried about.

Directions: Briefly introduce the segment. Ask students to watch and listen rather than take notes. After watching the documentary (runs a bit over 25 minutes) have students work in small groups of 4-5 to identify 3 issues that were mentioned in the documentary that they want to discuss further (this should take about 5 minutes). Once you call time, you can sample the class for responses. You will not have time to get input from everyone unless you change the design. However, if you feel the need to, you can always ask students to spend a few minutes free writing their thoughts and have them submit these at the end of class.
