American Civil Rights: Rosa Parks & The Montgomery Bus Boycott

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. All video are embedded and links provided.) Please see my shop for other high quality history resources.
