What does it take to stand up for an idea? Why do some people choose to take action to address a wrong, while others choose to standby and watch? This lesson outline invites students to reflect
on several episodes when individuals chose to take stand, and to also consider how these examples relate to their own lives. Readings are drawn from the Choosing to Participate study guide, and from the Holocaust and Human Behavior resource book.
