This site presents thoughtful and inspiring ways for kids to take an active role in improving the community around them. Click on the "Take a Lead" link for practical ways to turn your ideas into reality. Plenty of real-life examples are provided, but some creative brainstorming in your classroom is a must. Dozens of lesson plans, covering everything from environmental issues to economics and human rights are provided in the "For Teachers" section.

tag(s): civil rights (120)

In the Classroom

Introduce this site in a civics or government course in order to show students how important political awareness and activism can be - and how they can get involved. Dependent on your class, it may not be important to advocate that they join the cause - but more introduce it and let them know that they can. This might be better at the end of a civics course, culminating all the information they have learned thus far and showing a practical application of it.

We have yet to find a definitive career planning web site, but this offering from the US Departments of Labor and Education does a nice job of helping students sort out career options by both industry and education level. There's also a listing of which industries are growing most rapidly. While the site include many professions requiring a 4-year degree, job titles like engineer, physician, and attorney that require the most training are curiously absent.

National Runaway Safeline's tagline is "Keeping America's runaway, homeless and at-risk youth safe and off the streets." Find important information for students, parents, counselors, and anyone else who works with young people who have run away (or may be thinking about doing so) and their families.

This online presentation and catalog from trade schools reads much like a college web site. While there are reams of facts and figures, students should be aware that this site aims to attract strong students in the same way as the web sites from the four-year colleges do. Caveat user, but technical schools can provide great career opportunities for particular students.
