In order to focus on civics and other related disciplines in your social studies class, it's helpful to make use of essential questions
and/or a thematic curriculum. This presentation is a good way to get started with looking at one important theme: equality.
On each of the slides, you'll see a main essential question designed to help your students think about equality and inequality in society. Each question is accompanied by some follow-up questions to deepen the conversation.
This would be useful as a scaffold for a class discussion, which should take you between one and two forty minute periods. Start with a Think-Pair-Share or an A/B writing activity and then discuss the questions in turn. You can read more about how to use these equality essential questions in a lesson here
The slideshow wraps up with a closure activity requiring your students to write a short assignment. While you could use this as an exit ticket, it's better if you let students take it home and use more time to think and develop their response. Either way, it will help you check to see what students learned through the discussion.
