About This Collection
Each curriculum outline provides a roadmap for an 18-week study with links to the necessary activities, materials, and assessments. They are flexible and can be used in shorter increments than 18-weeks. In each curriculum, students explore questions of identity, membership and belonging, choices, and civic participation through different historical case studies and literature selections. They culminate their study with a final project that challenges students to create plans for how they can work with others and on their own to be upstanders in their school and local communities.
This collection includes:
