Lesson seeds are ideas that can be used to build a lesson aligned to the CCSS. Lesson seeds are not meant to be all-inclusive, nor are they substitutes for instruction. When developing lessons from these seeds,
teachers must consider the needs of all learners. It is also important to build checkpoints into the lessons where appropriate formative assessment will inform a teachers instructional pacing and delivery.
Images of justice and injustice
A variety of images reflecting issues of justice and injustice (See "Possible Resources" at the end of this lesson seed for examples*)
*These images have not been through a review process. Local school systems will have to make a determination as to their appropriateness. In addition, when selecting specific images for study, teachers should consider the link between these images and the research project at the end of this unit. Wise choices will make the research piece go more smoothly for teachers, media specialists, and students.
