Product Description
This is a final reflection that I used with my 9th grade non-academic English students as part of our Civil Rights unit, which is preparation for beginning the novel To Kill a Mockingbird. I used a movie viewing guide for Selma provided by a colleague; we watched and paid attention to particular points throughout the film. It took approximately 4 days to watch the entire film.

Before, during, and after the viewing of the film, the students used the Internet to investigate the practice of segregated proms. I provided the initial website and questions (included), but they were responsible for researching and taking notes as the unit progressed.

I do not have answer keys per se; however, points that we noted and discussed were:

* The way that MLK, Jr. and the SCLC planned and organized for the march in Selma
* The impact that the fight for Civil Rights had on families
* The persistence of those fighting for Civil Rights
* The practice of nonviolence
* The importance and significance of having supporters behind those fighting, i.e., Mrs. King, Mr. Jackson, Ms. Cooper.

Thank you. Please contact me with any questions; I am glad to help.
