Throughout history, there have been amazing people contributing to society in unique and inspiring ways. Some of these people make it into the history books and become household names, while others, who are equally significant, get lost along . In this unit 9th graders explored the question: Whose stories get told? Whose voices get uplifted? Based on the children's book series "Rebel Girls" by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo, they researched people who have changed history, but did not get the recognition they deserved. From activist to scientist, artist to mathematicians, the stories are all so similar. These people overcame incredible odds, challenged conventions, and changed the world.
