Civil Rights Movement
The students would watch a video of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech. They would then answer the Bellringer Question; "What is Dr. Martin Luther King's main message in his "I Have a Dream Speech?" Do you believe this message has been achieved today? Why or Why Not? This needs to be at least six sentences long.
We are a 1:1 laptop school so the students will have their laptops and will have a Schoology account with my class being one of their classes. This would be under their Chapter 27 Bellringers.
2 Direct Instruction
My classroom is flipped, which 1:1 laptops allows me to do, so they would have had to look over the interactive timeline and watch the videos attached the night before. They will then have the whole class period to complete the bellringer, assisngment, and closing activity. I would then be able to walk around and help them with their assignment during the class period, answering any questions they might have an helping them research more information on the different critical events in the Civil Rights Movement. The link to the timeline would be on my class site on schoology under chapter 27.
3 Guided/Independent Practice (Assignment)
Using either Text2Mind Map, MindMup, or Spiderscribe, the students will create three mindmaps describing three of the ten events that were discussed on the timeline. Their mindmaps need to include who, what, where, when, and how they believe the event effected the overall Civil Rights movement, need at least three ways each event effected the Civil Rights movement. They will find their resources and turn in their mindmaps on Schoology.
At the end of the chapter, they will use one of their mindmaps to write a short essay on one of the main events in the Civil Rights Movement.
They will have to comment on at least two individuals original post for the bellringer about Martin Luther King Jr's "I have a dream speech" Their comments need to be at least four sentences long. They will do this on Schoology.
