Want a fun way to introduce or enrich your student understanding on the Civil Rights Movement? Want a lesson that will impress classroom visitors, admin, and your students? This is it!
With your purchase you will receive eight QR station materials. Each of the eight cards comes with a QR code that leads students to a video, primary source, song, online encyclopedia, or summary. Once students are there, they read their task card and complete a synthesis activity. Every time my students do this activity their responses are glowing!
The eight stations are:
-video clips from The Butler on the Freedom Riders & a comic strip template
-Montgomery Bus Boycott 1957 comic primary source with analysis questions
-Brown vs. Board of Education Reading and questions
-video and summary of the Orangeburg Massacre (students create a police report---they love it!)
-link to Stanford Civil Rights Movement encyclopedia and directions to define essential vocabulary
-video clips from The Butler on Sit-Ins & a diary entry template
-summary of little known Civil Rights Movement leader Septima P. Clark and a eulogy assignment
-"Stange Fruit" song and analysis questions
This activity really has it all! Students work independently through a diverse collection of activities that allows them to hit multiple levels of Bloom's.
*The clips from The Butler are suitable only for mature students 13 & up, so preview them before use in your class.
