Civil Rights Movement 1960s-1970s DBQ Activity
This activity focuses on the Civil Rights Movement for Latinos, Asian Americans, and Native Americans in the 1960s-1970s, in particular the methods used by these groups. Students are given the following writing prompt:
“To what extent was the Civil Rights Movement for Latinos, Asian Americans, and Native Americans similar to or different from the civil rights struggle begun by African Americans?”
To accomplish this task, students are given 18 documents divided by ethnic group. The next part of the activity is entirely up to you. You could have students, as individuals, read all the documents, fill out a graphic organizer for each group, then write an essay answering the writing prompt. Or, you could have small groups focus on one ethnic group, then jigsaw with other groups to share information. The choice is yours!
