“Letters to Rosa” is a 4 to 6 session mini-unit on the stand for justice taken by Rosa Parks, who had a major impact on the civil rights movement when she refused to give up her bus seat to a white man in Montgomery, Alabama on December 1, 1955. That event led to the famous Montgomery Bus Boycott, a well-known event in Civil Rights history.

I developed this unit because I have seen my own students absorb and make meaning of history by making personal connections to the events and figures that we study. The activities in “Letters to Rosa” are ones that my students have particularly enjoyed each year.

Included in this resource:
Teacher directions for a five session sequence.
Templates and samples for poetry writing and friendly letter writing.
Article and response pages for a Close Read about Rosa Parks.
Template for an Interactive Notebook glue-in and a collage craftivity.
Suggestions for other resources to support learning and understanding.

“Letters to Rosa” would make a great addition to your lesson plans for Black History Month, or a stand-alone mini-unit connected to your reading and writing standards. You may even want to print all materials and directions and place the unit in your emergency sub tub!

Wishing you and your students an even better understanding of the events that have shaped the American nation’s history, and a clear view of what we as a nation must do to pave the road to the future.
