Product Description
This project is a historical background project that spans from Emancipation to the Civil Rights Movement. Each group is assigned one of the following topics: Emancipation Proclamation, 14&15 Amendment, The KKK, Plessy v. Ferguson, The Jim Crow Laws, Brown v. the Board of Education, Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott, The Little Rock 9 and Warriors Don’t Cry, Sit-ins at Greensboro, NC, Freedom Rides sponsored by CORE and SNCC, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.s’s life, or The Civil Rights Act of 1964.

They spend two days in the computer lab researching and creating their PPT. Then third day, they present to the class. After their presentation, we use the events to discuss a timeline of race relations in the US and I show where To Kill a Mockingbird fits in.

This reviews research with them and gives them a more well rounded view of race relations. It is a simple project that requires students to research so you, as the teacher, do not have to go through the history.

PLEASE contact me with ANY questions before purchasing.

Included in zip: Lesson Overview, Topics/Notes Sheet, Rubric, How to cite a website sheet, and an example student PowerPoint. The last thumbnail is a screen shot of the Works Cited of the student PowerPoint.
