Civil Rights - Rosa Parks (Reading, Primary Sources, Project, Assignments) - This 14 page Civil Rights teaching package includes 4 resources related to the life and legacy of Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott. The entire package includes all necessary teacher keys, guides, and rubrics for ease of use!
The package begins with a one-page reading on the Rosa Parks bus incident in 1955 and the impact it would have on the overall Civil Rights Movement. Next, the resource includes two pages of primary sources related to the arrest of Rosa Parks (original police report). Students will use the reading and primary sources to answer a set of analysis questions that center on factual information of the Rosa Parks protest and its overall impact on the Civil Rights Movement.
Next, this Civil Rights resource includes a research project wherein students will research a different example of protest or activism and compare it with Rosa Parks and her protest on the bus in 1955. The project requires students to complete research but allows freedom for students to pursue a topic that interests them as well as the freedom to complete the project in a manner of their choosing. A great student-centered activity in which students can build on their understanding of the Civil Rights Movement, Rosa Parks and the importance of protest and activism. Comes with a marking rubric for ease of assessment.
Finally, the resource includes a writing assignment where students will utilize their understanding of the Civil Rights Movement and Rosa Parks to argue a position in relation to her actions/protest. Come with a marking rubric.
This is a great activity for teaching students about the Civil Rights Movement, Rosa Parks and her legacy. It will make a great addition to your Civil Rights unit of study!
