This project can be used in a variety of ways--completed in small groups, in pairs, or individually. It was designed to be done by students who are just beginning to learn about, or previewing the material, but for lower level students, it could also be used as a unit assessment.
With this collage, students will preview material about the Civil Rights Era by researching and creating a collage of primary source images. Topics include: Segregation, Brown v Board of Education, Voting Rights Act and other legislation, Civil Rights activists and protests, and many other subjects typically covered in a US History Civil Rights Movement Unit.
The common core ELA History/Social Studies Standards that this project addresses are:
Integrate and evaluate multiple sources of information presented in diverse formats and media (e.g., visually, quantitatively, as well as in words) in order to address a question or solve a problem.
Integrate information from diverse sources, both primary and secondary, into a coherent understanding of an idea or event, noting discrepancies among sources.
