  • SS.11.H.CL6.3 – debate the role of activist for and against the Civil Rights Movement (e.g., KKK, Black Panthers, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., SCLC, Student Non- violent Coordinating Committee, AIM, Chicano Movement and UFWOC).
relation to students
  • This lesson will help to relate moments and individuals in U.S. History in an underrepresented group and how they have impacted American History. This gives the minority students in the classroom a sense of self and a role model that they can relate to. These individuals are members of their racial class.
  • A bulletin board will also be displayed in February during Black History Month displaying Dr. King and President Obama. Information will be created and displayed on the bulletin board from what the class feels is most impactful in U.S. History involving these two historical people. This will allow all students to work together and uncover new content about different racial groups, times in history and cultures.
