Note: Some of my products have some “out there” ideas. Make sure to look at the preview before purchasing. Everyone's classroom is unique and while these lessons work within my classroom, that may not be the case in another’s room.
This thought provoking lesson guide takes students on a journey discussing historic civil rights documents, speeches, poetry, and music. This lesson guides students to think deeply, analyze and synthesize the material in a manner, which will encourage discussion and will allow them to question whether we’ve made any progress in equality for all.
These activities encourage some levels of high thinking. Trust your students to engage and let them soar through the lesson guide. You’ll be proud of what your students are able to accomplish when given the opportunity!
Note: Links are provided (and hyperlinked) to navigate towards utilized documents, lyrics, video, etc. Also, these linked pages are free and not part of the unit's cost. As I do not own the songs, speeches, etc., I would not charge for them. They are simply linked for your convenience (along with a print option for copies for educational purposes.) The cost of the unit is for the activities I've made to go along with the material linked.
