Social Justice and Equity
Our goal for this unit is to help our students gain understanding of critical events that can impact anyone at any time. We have focused on the historical aspect, effects, and results of such events.
Our goal is to have our students work collaboratively to gain more knowledge about these events. After students have identified different times of crisis our students will understand many of the hardships this brings along.
Students will focus their Service Learning Project on homelessness as a crisis. Students will identify some of the needs and lack of opportunities brought along with this situation. Our hope is that our students recognized that this can happen to anyone and gain understanding the needs of becoming homeless. In their research, students will discover that there may also be young people that are faced with these hardships.
In this Integrated Thematic Unit, students of Vista High School will come together to help spread awareness homelessness and will address how they can make a difference.
