Focus Question 

What is a disability? How can we use the persuasive power of written or oral communication as an instrument of change?

Unit Overview 

Students learn that disabilities can be overcome with adaptations. We're all the same in one basic way: We all want other people to understand us. Our differences are something to be celebrated.

Service Experience 
At the school or in the community, students take action to remove a barrier or to accomodate a special need. For example, if there is a person who is deaf at the school, students can teach others American Sign Language for hand spelling the alphabet.  They use the persuasive power of communication to raise awareness of ways to understand and show respect for people with disabilities

Students learn that disabilities can be overcome with adaptations. We're all the same in one basic way: We all want other people to understand us. Students learn about needs of students in their school or community and take a step toward removing barriers. They use the persuasive power of communication to raise awareness of ways to understand and show respect for people with disabilities through a service project.
