The materials in this collection address the concept of social change. Social change, in many forms, has always been the catalyst that alters history. Areas explored in the collection include grassroots movements, political uprisings, how social change affects society, and technology and social media’s impacts on social change. The materials in this collection, both text and film, are geared towards high school students, vary in text complexity and address the Common Core standards need for reading informational texts for argumentative writing.
This collection is used to support the curriculum and use of the Common Core Standards. The contriversial nature of many aspects of social change spark debate and are useful when teaching persuasive and argumentative writing (City Wide Expectations Reading Informational Text Standards 1 and 10 and Writing Standard 1)
