9TH-12TH Grades: Teaching For Change
Enrichment & Access
English classes at Maret have partnered with Teaching for Change to help foment students’ interest in the Committed Generation writers from Central America. The members of the Committed Generation were authors who used literature to shine a light on key issues such as the need for land reform, recognition of indigenous and women’s rights, exploitative labor practices, environmental destruction, political repression and violence, and U.S. intervention. Through this investigation, students will be able to draw a correlation between these authors and themselves, and recognize that their own writings can have purpose and power to make change within the community.
