My students are tenth through twelfth graders in an urban, non-traditional setting of 500-800 students. The students transfer to the school from the nineteen other high schools throughout the county-wide school district. This unit will be incorporated throughout the nine week course.
I plan to move students through a discussion of due process and equal protection rights, to a brief history of the Civil Rights Movement and the individuals involved, to general discussion about how citizens can and should participate in a democracy, and finally, to the actual planning and/or participating in a community activity. I will use Barack Obama's story and the stories of 1960's Civil Rights leaders to show continuity of the movement and to inspire and motivate the students to become involved in their communities.
