Be The Change Lesson Plans
We launched Be The Change to provide relevant and high-quality educational resources with the goal of empowering learners at scale. We've created free, downloadable lesson plans so educators can easily incorporate these materials in their classroom.
Be The Change
Welcome to Quizlet’s Be the Change initiative. In partnership with Teaching Tolerance, Newsela, the New York Time’s 1619 Project and other leading organizations, we’ve gathered educational resources to support students and teachers in the discovery of America’s past and current social issues.
