        The Lowdown | A Brief History of Major Youth-Led Movements (Lesson Plan)

        School shooting survivors from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida took to the airwaves after 17 of their classmates and teachers were killed by a former student armed with a military-style rifle. Their movement, Never Again, prompted a wave of action nationwide, breathing new life into the gun control debate. Youth-led movements have a long history, focusing on issues from civil rights to freedom of speech. In this Lowdown lesson, students explore the role of youth-led activism and reflect on issues that would inspire them to join a movement.
