Use the Homelessness Curriculum this Fall

By Orion Lumiere

Educators are invited to check out Sisters’ curriculum on homelessness and download it from our web-site on the “PhotoVoice/Curriculum” page listed under our Programs. Educate youth K-12 about homelessness; use by itself or in conjunction with our traveling PhotoVoice exibit.

With an emphasis on dispelling stereotypes, the curriculum combines lesson plans created by advocates around the country and unique activities sreated by Sisters geared toward particular age groups, such as;

  • Writing, art projects& recommended reading
  • How youth can help end homelessness
  • Statistics and information on homelessness
  • Service learning opportunities for youth

High school activities incorporate critical thinking questions the Western Regional Advocacy Project’s eye-opening report, Without Housing, which looks at the root cause of homelessness, the las of affordable housing.

If you use the curriculum, Please take the time to fill out the curriculum evaluation form, also on the web-site. This will help continually improve it.
