Following last week’s mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, teachers across the country have faced questions from their students. We would like to hear from you about what it has been like in your classroom.   

  • How are you teaching your students about mass shootings on campus? 
  • How are you responding to students’ questions about gun violence? 
  • Have you integrated into your lesson plan the mass shooting in Oregon or others in the past? If so, how? 
  • How is this affecting your teaching generally? 

Please share your experiences in the comment section below. Include your name, school, grade level and the subject you teach. We plan to feature responses this week.
