Teaching America Divided

We’re proud to bring America Divided to educators and schools nationwide to discuss the myriad of issues surrounding inequality. Along with our celebrity correspondents Common, Rosario Dawson, America Ferrera, Zach Galifianakis, Norman Lear, Amy Poehler, Peter Sarsgaard, and Jesse Williams, we cover education, housing, healthcare, labor, criminal justice and the political system – all woven into an eight-story, five-part series.

We’re proud to share our our free Teaching America Divided curriculum below, a resource specifically designed for students in Grades 7-12. This curriculum can be easily adapted for Middle School classrooms.
