Have you ever wanted students to engage in social activism, but wondered how to get started? Partnering with a community non-profit makes activism authentic and tangible for this grade band. By connecting a community need with a cause they care about deeply, librarians implemented a successful girls’ STEAM summer camp to include community-based social activism. Attendees will leave empowered, with clear steps toward making social activism possible for their students all within a STEAM framework!

Learning Objectives:
  • School librarians facilitate opportunities to integrate collaborative learning by organizing learner groups for decision making and problem solving.
  • School librarians demonstrate the importance of personal, social, and intellectual networks by modeling the use of communication tools and resources.
  • School librarians foster active participation in learning environments by stimulating learners to recognize learning as a social responsibility.
