Good Trouble World File
Teachers will have their students enter the Good Trouble world and click on Emmeline Pankhurst in the lobby to teleport to Victorian London. There they will join NPCs of Congressman John Lewis and Emmeline Pankhurst, the leader of the Women’s Suffragette movement as she serves as a catalyst for change through the fight for women’s rights to vote. Students will explore the area and search for 8 different women NPCs who need to know that their time to vote has come. Once the 8th woman is informed of her right to vote, the Victorian gates will open and the students will return back to Black Lives Matter Plaza to meet with Congressman John Lewis to further discuss Good Trouble.
Students will share 3 words via Mentimeter that they would use to describe women during the Suffragette Movement that served as catalysts for change to ensure that all women had the right to vote. The teacher will project this Mentimeter and share it with the class and discuss the results with the class. Note: The larger the words appear in the Mentimeter, the more frequently the students mentioned that word.
