Unit Assessment: From Identity to Action

Four projects enable class members to show what they have learned about ways they can stand up for democracy. to begin, individuals review their identity charts and craft a mask that represents themselves. Next, groups create a short, illustrated children's book about conformity and belonging. The third project asks groups to create a School Declaration of Human Rights infographic. The final project has class members developing an action plan for something they could do to raise awareness and inspire change.
