These 11 questions of varying difficulty are from the Don't Know Much About History section titled "What was Brown v Board of Education?" This can be an intro or wrap up activity, or for when you have a sub. Students can read the section from DKMAH (actual text not included for copyright purposes) and answer the questions in this handout. The answers are included.
Sample questions include:
-Why couldn’t Linda go to Sumner for school?
-What was the mystery around separate but equal?
-Describe the disparity between black and white schools.
-Explain what the judicial equivalent of the shot heard ‘round the world was.
