Classroom Ideas

This clip could be used to illustrate socio-economic issues within the USA. In the clip, Alvin says "Poverty could decrease if people stopped being lazy." Encourage students to discuss their thoughts on this statement within their groups. During discussion, students could complete a table in their notebooks, outlining reasons why they agree or disagree with Alvin's view.
