This guided notes worksheet is intended to be used in conjunction with the American Radio Works documentary "Remembering Jim Crow." I use this this worksheet in my United States History class and Civil Rights History class. It would also be appropriate in an American Literature course to provide context for any novel set in this time period.
I play segments from the program "Remembering Jim Crow" in class and my students complete the guided notes worksheet as they listen. I also use this assignment with my Independent Study U.S. History students because the documentary can be found online for free.
The documentary is available both as a DVD or can be downloaded from the internet. If a student misses the program in class, they can access the entire documentary online and listen for free.
This powerful documentary captures the stories of hundreds of people who lived in the Jim Crow South. It is a powerful addition to any unit covering the Jim Crow era of American History.
