Do you need an interactive, student-centered project that will encourage social activism, group collaboration, and online research and content creation? Watch young activists speak and protest for positive changes, including 20-year-old Tyreke Baker, who published records of Oklahoma City protests through his own media production company — and follow them up with highly engaging student discussions. This unit contains everything you need to guide students through reading and viewing modern literature covering education, climate change, gun violence, and racial injustice, responding to daily essential questions, planning and writing a culminating essay, poems, short story, video, podcast, or website that encourages students to tell their stories and take a stand for others.
This complete project unit includes everything you need to guide students through research and preparing a final product. Students may choose from writing an essay, short story, or set of poems; recording a video, designing a website or recording a podcast. The unit includes some class discussion questions and QAR instructions to help students generate their own.
