In recent years, schools have developed various ways of dealing with and helping students understand social problems such as homelessness and crises that include national tragedies such as terrorist attacks and devastating hurricanes and war and local tragedies such as school shootings, teacher and student suicides, accidental deaths, discrimination or violence against targeted groups. All teachers share a responsibility for helping students come to terms with and sometimes act on these events, but teachers involved with a “writing classroom” of any kind have a unique stance from which to engage students in critical thought and discussion of the crises. What are some of the ways an instructor can use the writing classroom to promote constructive thought, discussion, and awareness of such issues? What are some of the considerations an instructor must explore before delving into these activities—personal feelings, student sensitivities, and community or school views?
