“Making Our Voices Heard:” AGC 2nd Graders Explore Leadership and Activism

17 Mar

Last week, Academy for Global Citizenship 2nd graders presented  biographies of social activists to groups of parents, teachers, staff and their peers. They studied famous activists from every era as well as activists from their own community, including their own teachers for the culmination of a 6 week unit on “making our voices heard!”









During this unit, students had the opportunity to interview activists from our extended community, including a Kindergarten parent in the Chicago Police force! They conducted interviews and independent research and discussed the similarities and differences between different types of activism.1016330_10153876546300523_1000790915_n 1897992_10153923884450523_1366866108_n
