High School Unit II

The Work of a Nobel Peace Prizewinner

Once students have read the Mass Moments essay about Emily Greene Balch and excerpts from her Nobel Lecture, ask them to choose one point that Balch made in her speech and respond to it orally or in writing. (The lecture can be read in full at the Nobel Foundation website.)

Mass Moments is a project of Mass Humanities, whose mission is to support programs that use history, literature, philosophy, and the other humanities disciplines to enhance and improve civic life throughout the Commonwealth.
