Are you a teacher? check out this mini-unit based on 10 Questions for Young Changemakers developed by Harvard’s Professor Danielle Allen and the Youth Participatory Politics Network.

Are you a student or school leader? Or do you want to step up into leadership at your school? Get others thinking about upstanding at your next club, school, or faculty meeting with this 20-minute activity:

Inspiring Civic Engagement 

The_10_Questions_Infographic_revisedAt a student club gathering or faculty meeting, explore and reflect on the relevance of the ten questions.

1. Break into 10 teams or groups, giving each an 8x10 printout of the infographic.

2. Assign each a different number to discuss for five minutes.

  • Why/how is the question relevant for us/our students?
  • What questions, responses, or concerns do we have around this question?

For students:

  • How could our club answer this question?
  • What does this question inspire us to do as a club?

For faculty:

  • How do we help engage students around this question?
  • How does this question align with our existing curriculum or programs?
  • What questions, responses, or concerns do we have around this question?

3. Give groups one minute to share reflections. Have one member of the group record these reflections on a master copy of the infographic.

4. After the meeting, digitally share the master infographic with everyone’s reflections and encourage people to continue to add additional thoughts.
