Stand Up! Speak Out!: The Social Action Curriculum for Building 21st-Century Skills is a guide to developing social consciousness in students by blending literary thematic explorations, historical investigations, and 21st-century research and evaluation skills. Each practical unit is arranged in progression from an in-depth study of a literary theme, to a historical examination and analysis of that theme, and finally, to an enriching real-world application that builds off students’ research. Each unit includes a culminating project meant to develop students’ social awareness and encourage social action. The process fosters students who are independent in their thinking, active in their search for knowledge, and productive in their creation of new solutions to real-world problems. This collection of units will give students a voice in their developing social awareness through analyzing our past and culture and daring to dream of a better future.
