Sometimes the strongest lessons come from simple analogies. Such is the case with this example from a high school teacher.
This was a no cost way to illustrate a complex point. Whether you agree with his lessons or not, there is no doubt that the exercise would have sparked a discussion.
The next time you need to make a complex point, as a character lesson, project presentation, teaching moment or civility reminder, keep in mind that an analogy may be the best way to have that lesson heard.
