Throughout our nation’s history, poetry and song have been used to express thoughts about injustice and to envision a world where freedom, fairness and justice are universal for all. Poetry is a chance for students to articulate their feelings and share them with others. This lesson provides an opportunity for middle school students to explore poetry and song about injustice, reflect on what social justice issues are important to them and write their own poems about social justice, using a variety of formats and finding creative ways to share their social justice poetry with others.
