The Bloomington-Normal Black History Project: Desegregating the Schools. Expanded Lesson Plan.
McBride, Lawrence W.; Lewis, Edward
This paper presents an expanded lesson plan for "The Bloomington-Normal Black History Project." This is a revised and expanded version of one of the six items that constituted the earlier work. The objectives are to analyze a primary source document, recognize the importance of individuals who made a difference in community history, and understand the significance of the past in shaping present attitudes. The paper presents a synopsis of the James A. Chase et al. v. David Stephenson et al. (1874) case addressing desegregation in the schools. Also addressed are community values and social institutions, as well as conflict resolution of human rights issues. Copies of newspaper articles related to the case and documents pertaining to the court ruling are a part of the lesson plan. (EH)
