Centered around a captivating short story by Ursula Le Guin, this resource focuses on consent, dissent, and timely issues such as COVID-19 and freedom of movement. It offers a complete teaching guide for one or more classes on the social contract.

My “toolbox” of pedagogical products includes a classroom exercise, learning objectives, discussion questions, additional resources, and adaptations for real-time virtual classrooms.
