Two different teaching/learning activities:

Two different teaching/learning activities Bubble Map Assignment Poster Group Activity I will divide you all up into five groups of five and then will assign you one topic per group. I will give each group an article that goes with their assigned topic. Each group will analyze the articles I provide and then discuss them. Then as a group figure out what to fill in the bubbles considering the following questions: • What was the main point of the article? • Who were the main people? • What was shocking or surprising about the article? • What were the main points? At least three complete sentences per bubble. I will divide the class into five groups of five. Then I will assign each group an important event in one of these movements. Each group will then design protest signs for the event and will present in front of the class as if they were the people protesting.

Why Civil Rights and Voting Rights?:

Why Civil Rights and Voting Rights? I chose this topic because of how much it shows people standing up for basic human rights. I think it is important for students to see how the people of our past stood up for what they believed and helped each other in times of great mistreatment and oppression. I also believe these are probably some of the most important events of our history. The kinds of issues talked about in this unit are still discussed today so it is very much relevant. Kids should learn how hard people had to work for basic human rights. They should also learn how minorities were treated before. I think it is a good unit plan to use technology with because it is easy to find pictures and videos of this time. I could show a video of Martin Luther King Jr. during his “I have a dream” speech and students would be able to see him deliver the speech. It is also very easy to find articles online as well as the Acts mentioned in this unit.
