This is the lesson that I walk through with students before we read Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor. The attachments you see on the Smart Notebook file link to videos that I have downloaded through Discovery Streaming. If you have an account, look videos on Sharecropping, Jim Crow Laws, Emmit Till, etc. They give great background knowledge.
Unfortunately when I tried to upload thumbnails, my file size is to large. If you would like to see a preview, please leave me a comment with your email, and I would be happy to send you one of the Smart pages to see if it's worth your while.
