Day of Dialogue Discussion Prompts

Please take time to give these questions thought and discuss them with your class. The goal is to get students thinking about ways they can be a changemaker for good at their school or in their community. Use these questions to guide students’ ideas, and generate ideas to submit for the Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day Award.


  • Is there anything you would want to change in the world? What is it?
  • Why do you think the issue you identified is important?
  • What are some small changes that you can make to get closer to that change? What would be the benefits of the small changes you identified? Are there ways to help others learn how to make small changes?
  • Who are people that are involved in the issue? Or who would you need support from to make change?
