The Greensboro Sit-In Webquest with Key - this is an 8 page document that contains a webquest and a completed teachers key for easy marking. It contains 16 questions based on the history.com website and a film clip from 2013's "The Butler."
Students will be asked to read an article about the Greensboro Sit-In and the four men who launched the sit-in movement. The planning for the protest, the nonviolent ideals of Gandhi, the spread of the sit-in movement across campus towns in the South, and the eventual integration of lunch counters across America are all topics covered by the article. Students will then be asked to search for a clip from the film "The Butler" which portrays a sit-in being carried out. TEACHERS WARNING- THIS MOVIE CLIP CONTAINS STRONG RACIAL LANGUAGE THAT MAY BE UPSETTING FOR YOUNGER STUDENTS.
