Freedom. How can you really teach a concept as large, vague, and personal as freedom?

For one teacher at Alexander Mitchell, a bilingual MPS school on Milwaukee’s south side, the idea of exploring freedom came to her after last year’s election. Disheartened by the divisiveness of the election, 6th grade teacher Nora Justin found herself feeling pretty uninspired. But that didn’t last for long.

When Ms. Nora heard the song “Letter to the Free (feat. Bilal)” by Common as she was getting dressed for work, she knew she could use music as a way to start a conversation about freedom with her class. She says that “as a teacher, you want to be able to successfully address social issues in a way that fuels dialogue.” She wanted her students to, all politics aside, just have a space to discuss what freedom means to them.
