This is an inquiry unit that allows students to explore current events through a critical lens. Specifically, students are guided through 9 learning experiences where they explore themes of RESISTANCE and RESILIENCE in the face of power inequities.
The unit engages students with particular model social justice issues but guides students to explore others while engaging in reflective thought about their own resiliency and ability to be agents of change.
The lessons themselves are fluid and open such that they can be responsive to student directions in the inquiry. Guiding questions are provided throughout as a provocation for student thinking.
Good luck in your pursuits of "Why People Resist in the face of Overwhelming Forces!" Be Great!
