Product Description
Are you looking for an engaging, critical-thinking lesson to help you celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month in your classroom?

Separate is Not Equal focuses on the landmark court case Mendez V Westminster. This lesser known case paved the way for the Supreme Court ruling in Brown V Board of Education to end school segregation.

thinkLaw uses the same critical thinking strategies taught in law schools and breaks them down in a manner that can be implemented by any teacher and learned by any student!

This lesson breaks down the landmark desegregation case Mendez V Westminster into an investigation and discovery activity. Students receive small pieces of information at a time. They must determine how they could learn more. Students determine witnesses that need to be interviewed, evidence that needs to be collected, and questions that need to be asked. As they work through the exercise, more and more information is revealed.

This lesson is fun and engaging while teaching about the Hispanic Civil Rights Movement and fostering critical thinking skills! Separate is Not Equal includes a 19 page PDF that includes student worksheets, suggested answers, and three pages of probing questions to accompany the PowerPoint slides! The resources and PowerPoint go together to provide a lesson that's effective but requires very little preparation!
