Civil Rights and Social Justice Resources for Classrooms
Our communities -- classroom and otherwise -- depend on the vigilant protection (and expansion) of our rights, respect for our differences, and continued fight for a more just, inclusive, and equitable world. For educators, this means inspiring students to become the next generation of critical thinkers and advocates for social change and equity. This collection of mostly free and web-based resources provides teachers with valuable professional development and classroom strategies for culturally responsive teaching and supporting diverse communities in the classroom. There are also tons of lesson plans and activities, as well as primary media, on challenging but necessary topics like racism, sexism, and genocide, as well as historical events like the civil rights movement and Japanese American internment along with contemporary social justice struggles.
