This is an introductory lesson to the Civil Rights Movement that includes 8 stations with varied and differentiated activities. There is a strong focus on Civil Rights Movement vocabulary building as well as a familiarization with prominent figures and events of the movement.
These stations include activities such as analyzing primary and secondary sources, using your own personal technological device, creating poems, drawing pictures, and even creating your own protest sign/symbol relevant to the Civil Rights Movement.
When I use this lesson in my classes, I put students into groups of four, give them the handout, and have them rotate through the stations, spending about 4 minutes at each one. My students love to get chances to collaborate in groups and be creative with content.
