Teaching About Social Justice

What is our job as teachers? Is our job to simply teach our students about our content area? Is it our job to teach responsibility, citizenship, character, etc.? In my opinion, it is our job to teach students all of the above. We must educate our students using a whole child perspective. In order to best teach our students we must make them aware of the world around them and educate them about what they can do to make the world a better place.

There are many resources available to teach students of all ages about social justice issues. These are just a few examples of websites which provide ready to use information and resources on teaching about social justice issues.
