Product Description
Looking for a great activity to kick off the move towards the Common Core standards for Social Studies? This activity is taken from a secondary source and radio program on NPR. The story of George Wallace's "Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever" speech illustrates the racial tensions in the deep South and the political tensions between the states and the national government during the 1960s.

After students listen to the story (link to the audio reading of the story is provided) while following along with the text, students are then asked to come with the main idea of the story and to produce specific evidence from the story to support their main idea (CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RH.9-10.2). I have provided a blank graphic organizer (and a completed sample) that can be easily reproduced and that is aligned to the Common Core standards.

This activity will help supplement any unit dealing with the political tensions of the 1960s and the Civil Rights Movement. Enjoy!
