Please go here to access Mr. Wood’s podcasts on the Civil Rights Movement.
I have used the website Blendspace to organize media access to the following events of the American Civil Rights movement. I will split the class into groups of three and four. Each group will have one day to organize themselves on an assigned events below. Begin with the Blendspace video and continue online to educate yourself and your partners further. I will cover each of these in class in the next two weeks. Your group will be together at the front of the room, clarifying the event. Your group will earn a fifty point homework grade based the following:
- Knowledge of the event – I’ll ask questions for you to clarify.
- The video from Blendspace – walk us through it.
- Specific significance of Amendment 14 in regard to your issue.
- Specific significance of Brown v Board in regard to your issue.
- Specific significance of Amendment 1 in regard to your issue.
- Specific significance of Amendment 10 in regard to your issue.
- I will ask questions of ALL group members. So educate one another
