Edexcel GCSE: Understanding The Jim Crow Laws (Paper 3: Development of Black Civil Rights)

Edexcel GCSE: Understanding The Jim Crow Laws (Paper 3: Development of Black Civil Rights)

The purpose of this lesson is to introduce pupils to section one of paper three (The USA, 1954-75: Conflict at Home and Abroad): Understanding the Jim Crow Laws. Tasks are linked to assessment objectives AO/1/2/3. Pupils begin by spotting the difference between a white and a black school during the 1950s. Reverse teaching strategy will be used here to add context as to why this was happening.Pupils are introduced to 'Plessy V Ferguson' (Video embedded) and define Separate but equal. (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 aging 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. Pupils will then apply their newly acquired knowledge back to one of the original photographs they were shown at the start of the lesson inferring what they can about the Jim Crow Laws From it.
