Students will select a person who has demonstrated moral courage OR an international conflict and a social justice issue affected by that conflict to research and create an inquiry question based on the topic to answer.
Option 1: Students will write and present about a person or group who has demonstrated moral courage based on a thematic unit or lens of the teacher's choice. This could be as specifically focused as to address the historical events related to a novel being taught in class or as broad as people who demonstrate courage during genocides or other societal/governmental conflicts.
Option 2: Students will write and present about an international conflict and a social issue affected by that conflict. Students' inquiry will focus on analyzing the causes of conflict, those affected by conflict (perpetrators, victims, bystanders), and or impacts of conflict.
