For students in my class for The Urban Age, next week we are talking about ‘the Right to the city’ movements, and I’ll be guiding you through a role play activity on #OccupyWallStreet. Here are a bunch of interesting resources from when it first appeared back in 2011.
I’ll be discussing Occupy Wall Street with my students on Wednesday (and longer, if they are interested). I’m also hoping my grade team will be up for delaying our planned field day on Friday for us to take a field trip to visit and have our students do a citizen journalist project. I’m preparing for a few different types of conversations based on what my students are most curious about, and I’ve divided the resources accordingly.
- The Original Call to Action
- Declaration of the Occupation of New York
- Protesters Against Wall Street (New York Times)
- Why I’m Here
- Occupy Wall Street voices from Zuccotti Park: David Everitt-Carlson, 55 (from Mark Anderson / @mandercorn)
- Cornel West Speech at Liberty Plaza (Democracy Now!)
- Occupy Together Posters
