Stay in the Mix for Valentine's Day

Grades K-8

The origins of the Valentine's Day holiday are actually rooted in resisting injustice! In this lesson, students read two stories from other students, each one addressing injustices they stood up against on Valentine's Day. Learn more here.

 

Stay in the Mix During National Poetry Month!

Grades K-12

Poetry is a great way to engage others in dialogue and to communicate the power of crossing boundaries. Using two poems written by students, you can use this lesson to explore themes of exclusion and empathy. You can then follow that up by having students write poems of their own. Learn more here.
