Learning Goal: Thinking about what matters and advocating for change.




• How can I be the change I wish to see in the world and live by the way of Ubuntu?
• What is advocacy?
Consideration: Ubuntu meaning “I am because you are”.


• In groups of three students will explore The Advocacy Toolkit with a partner or in a group of 3 in the computer lab
• In exploring they will see stories of young people standing up for their rights and advocating for change


• What do you want to change? What do you want to advocate for?
• Each group will use the worksheet below to find 3 sources which speak to the topic they want to advocate for. They will evaluate the source’s accuracy/validity using Social Media Smarts: Fact vs Fiction.
