Social Justice and Equity
By studying about demographic shifts in society, students will come to an understanding of the reality that segregation still exists and how to combat it. The idea is that students will come to a natural understanding of the difficulties of combining cultures with keeping peaceful relations and understandings of each other. Students will also research the connection between socioeconomic status and ethnicity in their communities. That research will likely display continued inequities and the students will be asked to determine whether this is an issue of social justice. The assessment will be a written summary of what social justice learning they come to from this research.
