About This Lesson

Do you need an interactive, student-centered project that will encourage social justice awareness and group collaboration? Go beyond just reading dusty tomes written by dead people and regurgitating boring details. Delve into a TED Talk, a related poem, and follow them up with highly engaging student discussions. 

This 1-2 day lesson contains everything you need to guide students through reading and viewing modern literature covering social justice topics, responding to a daily essential question, and planning and writing a culminating essay that encourages students to tell their stories and take a stand for others.
