Learning-Oriented Resources on Leading Change

Educators from Harvard University Graduate School of Education (HGSE), Massachusetts Institute of Technology Teaching Systems Lab, and the instructional design firm Fresh Cognate have created Youth in Front, a new hub of learning-oriented resources and multimedia assets for young activists and educators interested in making their voices heard—particularly those who are stepping into activism for the first time, as well as for educators who are responding to action in their schools and communities. Youth in Front offers two distinct portals: one for students and one for educators. For students, the content covers topic areas such as how to organize a protest, how to avoid getting into trouble, and how to get adults on their side. For teachers, the content addresses questions about how they can support students within the policies and procedures of their schools and districts, how they can be allies, and what happens after the day of action. HGSE will share resources for young people, educators and district leaders, and parents via its social channels. As the team continues to build up resources and content, students will be able to engage with Youth in Front via Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter. Allied organizations such as Teaching Tolerance, Facing History and Ourselves, and Generation Citizen have contributed key resources.
