|For this final project, students choose a local, national, or international movement/issue with which they feel some solidarity, then investigate the facts and figure out a way to do something of their own design to make the world better. Students are asked to explore, design, and follow through and act on an action step - big or small - that comes from an informed place.
The process for the final project is designed around the C3 Framework for Social Studies State Standards. Students learn concepts and vocabulary, develop critical thinking skills, practice the research process, examine forces larger than individuals, and reflect on activism from a place of self-awareness and empathy. The final project was designed for distance learning.
