Social Justice Project
The Social Justice Project (“SJP”) is a performance based task where students will demonstrate their ability to question, research, lead, act, present, and reflect in order to confront a social injustice in their community. It is an example of synthesis, the assembling of critical elements of what the students learned in a new combination, product or other form.
Social justice is not a spectator sport. In order to pass the SJP, students must do the following:
- Identify a social justice problem in the community.
- Create an informed “Social Justice Action Plan.”
- Conduct activities that will attempt to solve the problems.
- Raise awareness in the broader community.
- Plan an raising awareness event or series of events.
- Analyze data throughout your project.
The Social Justice Project will be evidence of the students ability to fulfill the mission of Capital Preparatory Magnet School. The SJP is a
graduation requirement for high school seniors.
