Product Description
What happens when the government fails its citizens? What is the right response to an unjust law?

This engaging Powerpoint guides students to an understanding of what Civil Disobedience is and focuses on why Americans have used this method throughout history. It will most likely take 1 class period. I created this to use in my 7th grade Civics class, but it would work well for many other subjects!

Includes:
- Discussion starter for the beginning of class
- Intro to Henry David Thoreau and Civil Disobedience
- Civil disobedience definition for note-taking
- Primary quote analysis and collaborative pair discussion
- Student create a graphic organizer to analyze six examples of civil disobedience in American History
- Two higher order thinking prompts for students to pick from and respond to in paragraph form
- Guidelines for peer review of the written paragraphs

Extension activity idea:
Have students research and evaluate the many examples of civil disobedience we see in the modern world.
