Lesson Plan: Catalyst for Activism – Frank's Story


When listening to Chris Morris’s interview of Father Bob Begin, Fr. Begin mentioned a story about one of his prior religion students, Frank. Frank’s experience greatly impacted Fr. Begin and his enthusiasm protesting the Vietnam War. The clip and following lesson materials present an excellent classroom scenario to further examine our protest history in the United States.
