Social Justice Lesson Plans


About the Social Justice Lesson Plans


The purpose of the NEA Social Justice Lesson Plans is to share the stories of the NEA Human and Civil Rights Awards Recipients. Through  the sharing of their stories educators can help students identify traits of these exemplary social justice leaders. Bigger questions in social justice education can be examined and reflected upon. (e.g., What does a person who stands for social justice and human and civil rights do? What actions do they take? What are their contributions to society? How can I become a social justice and human and civil rights advocate? Why is it important and what does it mean to exhibit leadership for social justice?) Four anchor standards related to Social Justice Education identified by Teaching Tolerance, a project of The Southern Poverty Law Center (TOLERANCE.ORG), will also be addressed throughout the lessons plans.
