Sometimes, humor is how we manage emotions and make connections. This is an important conversation in regard to how humor is used and being aware of what is shared. I've tried to be more mindful of memes I share after reading more about linguistic analysis and stereotypes in memes, especially towards POC. Connecting students and teachers with comedians is also a wonderful way to help learn about how to use humor. Clayburn Cox is a comedian and teacher in Auburn, AL. He is certainly one to connect with on this idea! Great idea Charlsie Wigley 

I also envision this as something that can be done online as a longer design "sprint" and could be targeted to a need that is specific to the region or community. I'm not only a teacher, but I'm also a student in a Teacher Leadership Education Specialist (EdS) program. Rather than complete literature reviews about engaging students, why not learn to collaborate with each other and help build the creative problem-solving skills set of all students in the course.

Hi @SaraNethan I don't see this as a restructure of of what we are doing, but rather a build on it as a possible innovation in education course. High school students could even receive an elective dual enrollment credit, while college students receive an education or elective credit.
