Best used in a Civics, Government, or Political Science class after a study of how activists fight for social change.
Students choose an activist from a list of lesser-known but relevant modern and historical activists from around the world. They will research their early life, motivation to become involved in a cause, actions, and outcome. Included is the assignment, options for activists, and a note-taking sheet to guide students. Can be scaffolded down or up to work with a variety of students!
