Yesterday, I shared Lessons For The Derek Chauvin Trial & Its Aftermath, which included several previous “Best” lists, including New & Revised: A Collection Of Advice On Talking To Students About Race & Racism and HELPFUL RESOURCES FOR TEACHING ABOUT GEORGE FLOYD’S DEATH.

Now that a verdict has been reached, I know that many educators – including me – are figuring out lesson plans for tomorrow.

Many of the lesson ideas in those previous lists are very applicable.  Here are a few lesson resources that are specifically about the Chauvin trial (the ones at the bottom are NEW additions):
