“Let’s Meet A Community Activist” will teach our students about community activism in their own neighborhood. Students will be introduced to a native Newark activist and the ways this community leader helps their local area with their activism. The lessons have been created to show students that no matter what age they are, they all have a voice and can demonstrate actions that can bring change to the community. The unit plan ensures that students are afforded a choice if they do want to become a community activist themselves, as it reiterates the fact that activism and activists can change their world and the world for the better.
