The UNC Center on Poverty, Work, and Opportunity is pleased to present the following curriculum on the study of poverty for high-school students. The curriculum was designed by Brian McDonald, a teacher at Jordan High School in nearby Durham, NC.
The curriculum is comprised of six units:
Each unit is designed to be easily included in a variety of classes - social studies, history, economics, political systems, or any other.
The more intrepid teachers out there can use the 6 units as a basis for an entire class on the study of poverty. Mr. McDonald has done just that. View Mr. McDonald's full course website, including additional materials, course outline, and syllabus.
