Task Description
English and History partner to investigate the development of the Civil Rights Movement. Students will learn how the conflict evolved from a southern issue to an issue that divided communities throughout the country. Students will be exposed to a variety of case studies in English. In History students will develop their understanding of regional laws and practices and Supreme Court cases that defined the Movement.To culminate their experience students select a topic or person from the Civil Rights Movement for further investigation. Students create a narrative script where they play the roles of the historical figures to explain the movement through that person’s experiences. This project was presented to the community at the Civil War Museum.
