"That bus boycott was weak! Some tired old lady just didn't want to stand up." That's what my roommate told me in college. Just one of the many myths surrounding Parks and the bus boycott.

Now, do your students know what really happened that day Rosa Parks was arrested? (And not for the first time too at that.) Do your students know the history that led to the Montgomery Bus Boycott? Teach them the truth behind what happened using this song that explores the events that sparked the Montogomery Bus Boycott, Rosa Parks' history as an activist, and the community effort that resulted in the success of the civil rights movement.

You can even extend your lesson using reading activities based on the song lyrics. These activities cover skills like main idea and details, context clues, and root words and affixes all while your students learn the history behind Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
