ABSTRACT
It has been over a year since our schools, like many across the world, had to shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This forced many teachers to pivot by changing curricula and lessons to be engaging for students and include opportunities for interactions while incorporating digital tools that were accessible for all students. The COVID-19 pandemic also shed light on systemic issues that became politicized. Discussing controversial topics within the contexts of the classroom discipline has always been important but will be even more so as we move forward. Here, Laub shares her experiences incorporating a polarizing topic that investigated the science surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and how doing so engaged her students in critical thinking and drove academic discussions. She also shares the challenges that she faced by centering her curriculum around a controversial topic in her classroom along with her suggestions to educators.
