Through this unit, students think about and reflect on how they can make changes in themselves, in their local community, and globally. The unit begins by asking students to identify who they are as a person and what makes them who they are. From this self-analysis, the unit moves on to examine how one person can affect the story of another person’s life, and then how that story can have an impact on a group, the community, and the world.
