An excellent resource to build social consciousness and critical thinking and research skills in students who will need to operate in a global economy, work in interdisciplinary teams, solve problems that cross cultural and national boundaries, and strengthen the democracy of the United States.
Stand Up! Speak Out!: The Social Action Curriculum for Building 21st-Century Skills is a teacher-ready guide to developing social consciousness in students by blending literary thematic explorations, historical investigations, and 21st-century research and evaluation skills.
Each practical unit is arranged in progression from an in-depth study of a literary theme, to a historical examination and analysis of that theme, and finally, to an enriching real-world application that builds off students’ research.
This process fosters students who are independent in their thinking, active in their search for knowledge, and creative in their solutions to real-world problems.
This collection of units gives students a voice in their developing social awareness through analyzing the past and culture and daring them to dream of a better future.
