For this lesson, we will be walking the students through a virtual field trip of the south, stopping at places important to the civil rights movement. We will be using the following website: http://edtech2.boisestate.edu/croninv/502/Virtual_Field_Trip/Virtual_Fieldtrip.html
As we stop at each tour stop, we will have a student hold up a marker that shows where we are. This is to have the kids be an active participant and to give them the feeling that we are actually going someplace, even though we aren’t leaving the classroom. The students will have a graphic organizer to help them focus on the lesson and take notes/write reflections as directed. We will discuss Emmitt Till, Rosa Parks, The Little Rock 9, the Montgomery Bus Boycotts, the peaceful Protests, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Students will then write an essay about how courageous acts can change history.
