Week 34: May 3 - 7

Periods 3, 6, 7 and 8:

This week we'll kick off our unit on the Civil Rights Movement with one of the best Civil Rights films: Freedom Song. This film tells the story of one of the first organizing projects of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) - the most important civil rights organization of the 1960s. It revives the history of young people as the key leaders of the movement. You'll have one assignment to complete after you finish the film:

1) Freedom Song Interior Monologue

Periods 2a and 2b:

We celebrated the first era of Black political power in this country with Found poetry. Now we're going to start investigating the backlash that ultimately toppled the Reconstruction governments in the South. We'll begin preparing for a mock trial next week built around the question "Who Killed Reconstruction?" You'll have two assignments detailed in Google Classroom:

1) Edpuzzle: The End of Reconstruction

2) Who Killed Reconstruction? Trial Worksheet
