Lesson includes a pre-walk photo analysis exercise to create brainstorming, 15 photo placards, a teacher lesson plan with questions to promote critical thinking for each photo, and an exit ticket activity, which involves students writing to President Eisenhower about the need to support the emerging Civil Rights Movement. To help structure the gallery walk, students utilize a provided scaffold to guide their thinking in answering the provided essential question. The exit ticket includes a rubric for easy grading.
