New TED-Ed Video & Lesson Tries To “Thread The Needle”: “How does fracking work?”


This new TED-Ed video and lesson on fracking does a good job “threading the needle” of providing an objective look at the controversial practice, which many teachers will welcome since it can be a tricky issue to handle (especially in communities where fracking is done).

Unfortunately, however, the video is also somewhat boring. But it’s short, and can still function as an important resource that will probably encourage more educators to at least discuss the topic in classrooms.
