Learning Pathway: Student Rights
Building Democracy For All is designed so that teachers and students can follow different learning pathways as they explore the material in the book. Rather than proceeding sequentially through the standards, the learning pathways invite a thematic approach. Other learning pathways include: Black Lives Matter, Influential Women, Election 2020, Media Literacy, and Current Events.
