American Civil Rights: Rosa Parks & The Montgomery Bus Boycott

The lesson begins with pupils being handed a letter from the Mayor of Montgomery pupils interpret and infer from it to guess the focus of the lesson. Pupils are introduced to Rosa Parks and asked to discuss what they already know about her and segregation in the south. There is a video (embedded) to introduce pupils to Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat. Pupils are provided with a fact file sheet highlighters are to be used to assess why she was significant as many other women before her had refused to give up their seats. Pupils are then required to circulate the classroom to piece together the events of the bus boycott which followed (additional activity suggestions are suggested as well) Pupils watch a video to embed knowledge of events. I then use whiteboards as a plenary to assess this e.g. each write an event and arrange themselves in chronological order. (Further advice can be found in the description of the presentation.

(mini white boards could be used for this task) Teacher then introduced what the Jim Crow Laws were - pupils watch a video (embedded) and see how many they can identify. (again mini whiteboards could be used again to identify these a good visual strategy to show pupil progress) Pupils are then challenged to remember as many laws as they can before conducting a snowball fight activity to consolidate this (instructions in the description of presentation) Pupils are then encouraged to rank the laws (worst to least worst) before participating in a mix-pair-share Kagan activity explaining which they personally feel to be the worst law.
