Humanities 7 – Unit 5 Working For Change In Girls’ Education


Unit 5 - Working For Change in Girls' Education

Throughout this unit, we have been focused on how conflicts and war have affected the region of Southwest and Central Asia. In particular, we have looked at the harrowing story of Malala Yousafzai who stood up to the Taliban in her struggle for an education. After learning about this region, reading I Am Malala, and watching He Named Me Malala, you will now create a presentation to educate others about the ways individuals and organizations are working to make progress in the promotion of girls education around the world.
