Description

Class Experience

-Students will share their ideas and respond to the ideas of others in a way that allows for disagreement but still values the student’s perspective. 
-Students will learn different ways they can create a positive change in their community such as voting, protesting, standing up for what's right, and writing letters to representatives. 
-Students will see first-hand real-life examples about how to be a social justice advocate right away in their everyday lives.
