Product Description
Every good U.S. History course should examine the goals, strategies, and legacy of the Civil Rights Movement. It always amazes me that these stories and transformative events are new to my students. They know who Martin Luther King Jr. is, but not where he comes from or how Movement changed him. They have seen Malcolm X on t-shirts, but they do not know what he stood for. This project is a simple set of essential questions that will guide an inquiry project, and culminate in a socratic seminar. An extension activity is a comparative collage of Martin Vs. Malcolm. Included in the project is a graphic organizer for students to take notes of major Civil Rights events. If students have access to the internet there are numerous sources for students to get information. Some of my favorite resources for studying Civil Rights include:

Eyes on the Prize Documentary (Youtube)
Read Like a Historian- Stanford History Education Group
Freedom Now: The Civil Rights Movement in Mississippi- Choices
Black History Milestones- History.com
