Social Justice Fair

Student with Social justice Fair exhibit on LGBTQ movementsThe Social Justice Fair is an open-ended, exploratory based learning project. At the beginning of the year, students choose any Social Justice topic to investigate and analyze, such as: Black Lives Matter, Second-Wave Feminism, or the #MeToo movement. They research the history of the movement, the problems it seeks to solve, and the means of achieving its goals, and finally, they analyze whether or not the movement is/was successful. Students present their research at the end of the year in a manner similar to a traditional “science fair.” The Social Justice Fair requires writing and analyzing, allows for creativity, promotes students’ public speaking skills, and helps students identify as agents of social change.
