Encourage Students to Overcome Stereotypes through Personal Narratives
Do you need an interactive, student-centered project that will encourage empathy, resisting stereotypes, 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.
Teaching Empathy & Social Justice Through Narrative and Argumentative Writing Projects
Looking for an interactive project that will foster student empathy, encourage activism, and build group collaboration skills as part of a writing project? Delve into highly-engaging spoken-word poetry, music videos, TED Talks, and an essay written by Oklahoma author Jordan Womack. This unit contains everything you need to guide students through reading and viewing modern literature covering social justice topics, responding to daily essential questions, planning and writing a culminating essay, video, presentation, or children’s book that encourages students to tell their stories and take a stand for others.
