These educator resources are designed to support anyone who wants to teach for social justice.
Social justice is not a singular topic to be “covered.” We encourage educators to utilize social justice as a lens through which they and their students evaluate the past and present all year long. To support this method of teaching, our materials expand beyond the historical events of the Underground Railroad to include a range of topics from various periods in history across the four core disciplines of social studies (civics, economics, geography and history). They also expand beyond social studies and provide opportunities for cross-content collaboration.
There are several types of materials included in our collection of educator resources. Informational texts, activity packets and professional development materials are labeled “resources.” “Lesson plans” are materials designed to engage students for one or two class sessions. “Inquiries” are materials created using the C3 Framework and Inquiry Design Model.
