English 1 CT-Research on Social Justice Leaders

Often the life story of a person that influences society or its direction can be motivating and inspiring to us.  Mr. Jilka's English 1 CT class is practicing research skills by investigating and recording information about a person that has been/or is in the positioning of assisting or guiding the betterment of life for people.  For example, this might mean aiding in environmental causes, human rights, leading a movement, or leadership positions.  Students are examining three areas: influences on the person's life; actions the person took or movements they enacted, and their influence on society.  The Write Tools format is being followed in the process.
