How do you structure your social justice class?

Hi All,

Looking for a book or resource that talks about the revolutionary/radical nature of the early Christian Church

Hi Everyone,

This summer, I'm looking for a book that shows that the early Church was radical/revolutionary in carrying out the social justice teachings of Jesus.  I'd like to show the students that the early Church was persecuted, in part, because of their different lifestyle that incorporated resistance to the Roman concept of justice.  Thanks and Happy Summer to All!  John Powell

Looking for summer reading books on social justice for middle school students

I am looking for recommendations for summmer reading on Social Justice for students entering 7th and 8th grade.  Last year, my students read Be The Change  by 15 year old Zach Hunter.  The students did not seem to enjoy it.  I am looking for something that is enjoyable, but will make them think a bit outside their comfort zone.  Any suggestions would be greatly  appreciated!
