The Bigger Picture Tool Kit is a resource for educators and students to learn more about Type 2 Diabetes. It includes a Writing Workshop Book that includes complimentary lesson plans, writing prompts, visual aids, facts and figures, conversation starters, a glossary of terms, and insightful ways to view and examine the existing video PSAs. It also includes a Workshop Book that features interesting handouts, worksheets, vocabulary and other learning aides to compliment the use of the video PSAs as teaching tools.
It is our hope that as you implement the lessons and activities in this document, you inspire more stories to be told, and empower more people to care about preventing the spread of Type 2 Diabetes.
This is a great tool that provides educators with additional material to support the showing of the videos. Students will be able to experience the writing workshops and be able to more deeply investigate this health crisis with a workbook full of factual information about the epidemic. Teachers are encouraged to use the workbook and toolkit as a tool to extend the school visit experience. These lessons are not designed with a specific subject matter in mind and should be great instruments for English teachers, science teachers, health education teachers, and others interested in teaching about Type 2 Diabetes and social justice.
