PSA: What to Do...
This is Your Project:
With this project, you will analyze tactics used to combat racism to design and deliver effective PSA messages.
Take at least three days and explore what other kids and schools are doing to fight racism. Google and explore website-after-website and then take the time to read through them to see if any of the information is useful.
Then apply what you learn from numerous sources to create your own PSA storyboards.
By Using Powtunes or Google Slides, students will work in small groups to create a creative PSA that challenges your peers to examine their own prejudices and biases and to be on guard against it.
