Social Activism is a key aspect to educating and being educated. For this Capstone, the researcher discusses on the outcomes to implementing a social activism curriculum into an elementary classroom. The participants for the Capstone Project included fifth-grade students in a public elementary school located in a small agricultural city. Through a literature review and detailed lesson plan, the researcher has further discussed and described implementations through multiple subjects which serve and acknowledge all students in the classroom. As a result, the researcher has found a need for a social activism curriculum in this problem-solving elementary school. With an arrangement of resources related to social activism and multiple implementations, the researcher aimed to help educate, inspire, and to acknowledge the future generation. The Capstone benefits the researcher by challenging the researcher to inspire other future educators to teach through a variety of learning styles.
