Lesson Plan, Unit


By Sherry BrownStudents will develop a project around a social or environmental issue which is important to them. In groups, students will research their topic and write a précis with a works cited page. In groups, they will then develop and present a multimedia presentation on their topic. The presentation will present the points from their précis, include music, photos, and videos, and incorporate elements from art, poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. They must also engage in primary source research or a community action component. Finally, the students individually will write a personal reflection and connection paper. Through this process, the students will address the essential questions: “Why should we explore and grapple with social and environmental issues?” and “How can I be a force for positive and substantive change?”These works are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.
