High school educators: The CSUSB Anthropology Museum has produced a FREE online educational resource:.
The curriculum was developed by the Region 10 Content, Literacy, Inquiry, Citizenship (CLIC) Project and it provides scaffolded activities that support reading comprehension, the writing of personal narratives, and general comparative thinking. The lessons have been designed to utilize an array of effective pedagogical strategies, including Question Formulation, Say-Mean-Matter, Historical Thinking Technique, and Choice Board. Content also aligns with the California History-Social Science Framework, and supports FAIR Education Act compliance.
In|Dignity supports development of critical thinking skills while also promoting empathy, discouraging bullying, supporting marginalized identities, encouraging a sense of community, and inspiring civic engagement. It is on this foundation that students can build and move meaningfully into deeper analysis and evaluation of texts, history, and current events throughout their scholastic endeavors and beyond.
