This is a four page unit from Reading Through History documenting the murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner during the Freedom Summer project in 1964. The brutal killings brought national media attention to the largely ignored persecution of black voters and the dangers experienced by civil rights workers in the South. There is a one page reading followed by three pages of student activities. The student activities include multiple choice questions, a student response essay question, a guided reading activity, and vocabulary activities. There is enough material to cover around 40 minutes of class time.
