Signature in the Schools: UnResigned Educational Resources

Hello and welcome to Signature in the Schools’ UnResigned!

This world premiere production looks at civics, education and the power of the vote. UnResigned, written by acclaimed theater artist Joe Calarco, looks at the contributions that each of us can make as citizens and what it means to be a citizen.

We invite you to explore the world of UnResigned with your students before and after you see the performance. Each of the sections below provides a full multimedia experience: Articles, lesson plans, images and more! This online guide will help your students dive deeper before, during and after the performance of UnResigned they attend.

At the top of each section, you will find a downloadable article. These are intended for students. Read through them and share the ones you think would benefit your students the most with them! The remainder of the page is intended for teachers. These exercises may be used in many capacities; they do not have to be used in order or in correlation with one another. If there is a resource that particularly pertains to your curriculum, we hope that you will use it as a supplementary activity. The goals listed in the articles and exercises are derived from the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOLs).

The exercises and articles were created by a team of educators and theatrical professionals.
