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.
