Do you need an activity that analyzes the Civil Rights Movement during the 1960's? If so we've got exactly what you're looking for!
This "Civil Rights Under Kennedy" Activity includes:
1) A document-based activity that will help your students understand the events that made up the civil rights movement under the Kennedy Administration. Your students will start out filling out a graphic organizer that asks them questions about the Freedom Riders, the Birmingham March, and the events that took place and the University of Alabama and Ole Miss. Once completed with this, students will read through MLK's "I Have A Dream" speech and answer questions about the speech. Included in the assignment are links to video and audio of the speech. This gives you the tools to create an environment where your students can see and listen to MLK give his speech! The questions provided will challenge your students to engage with the content at a higher level. They are asked to find and interpret metaphors that King uses in the speech as well as identify what MLK's dream is.
This activity can be used in many different ways in the classroom. Students can work independently, in pairs or this activity can be used as a jigsaw in order to facilitate a class wide discussion about the topics discussed in the activity.
2) A detailed answer key to the lesson activity to save you time and help guide student comprehension.
