The Importance of Voice
Rating

Within this series of lessons, students will explore these essential questions:
What basic human necessities are needed to thrive in society?
How do we measure wealth?
How to move from oppression to resiliency?
How to move from oppression to social change?
Students will examine the extent to which people pass judgment, discriminate and violate human rights in communities of color and to what extent these same communities remain resilient. Students will learn and apply their knowledge of non-violent communication to increase self awareness, school and career readiness skills in the social-emotional domain, and develop an understanding about their bio-reactions. Students will research and analyze strengths and challenges within their community. They will then identify a need and develop action steps to meet that need. We will move our instruction from broad to personal perspectives of understanding the conditions in the larger world as well as their own. By moving from the global/community perspective into the relational/historical experience and end with their personal perspective, students will develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of themselves within time and space.

Students continue to build a rigorous background in human sensors and their engineering equivalents by learning about electronic touch, light, sound and ultrasonic sensors that measure physical quantities somewhat like eyes, ears and skin. Specifically, they learn about microphones as one example of sound sensors, how sounds differ (intensity, pitch) and the components of sound waves (wavelength, period, frequency, amplitude). Using microphones connected to computers running (free) Audacity® software, student teams experiment with machine-generated sounds and their own voices and observe the resulting sound waves on the screen, helping them to understand that sounds are waves. Students take pre/post quizzes, complete a worksheet and watch two short online videos about "seeing" sound.
