Product Description
This is a set of lessons designed to span four days with a fifth day of wrap-up and review. The lessons could be extended depending on extra activities added and the students. It involves looking examining current-day news sources, primary sources, discussion, and what "justice" truly means to the students, historically, and today. Suggested primary sources include MLK's letter from the Birmingham jail, newspaper propaganda against women's voting rights, and sources that show the opposite perspective. Sources should be chosen with the curriculum in mind as well as getting students to understand multiple perspectives of what justice looks like to the law and to different everyday people. Teachers should also help students disagree respectfully and communicate viewpoints in a positive way. By incorporating present-day news sources this also contributes to media literacy and examining sources.
