Educator’s Lesson Plan: Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela

Many edu­ca­tors want to incor­po­rate the pass­ing of sig­nif­i­cant fig­ures into their class­room dis­cus­sion. ADL’s Edu­ca­tion Divi­sion pro­vides resources to edu­ca­tors about con­tem­po­rary issues and cur­rent event top­ics to help make class­room learn­ing more dynamic forums for crit­i­cal thinking.

In cel­e­bra­tion and mem­ory of the life of Nel­son Man­dela, this spe­cial edi­tion of The Cur­rent Events Class­room pro­vides stu­dents the oppor­tu­nity to learn, in sev­eral ways, more about Nel­son Man­dela and his extra­or­di­nary life.

Nel­son Man­dela, for­mer South African Pres­i­dent and a coura­geous leader, ded­i­cated his life to end­ing apartheid and build­ing a free, mul­tira­cial and demo­c­ra­tic South Africa.  He led by exam­ple to inspire a more equal world.  Nel­son Man­dela will be long remem­bered as one of the great­est fig­ures of his gen­er­a­tion and one of the most inspi­ra­tional and effec­tive freedom-fighting fig­ures in mod­ern his­tory.  Get class­rooms to dis­cuss Nel­son Mandela’s life and legacy here: Down­load the les­son plan (PDF).
