Civil Rights Movement Unit. Using Primary Sources in the Classroom.
Alabama Dept. of Archives and History, Montgomery.
This teaching unit, "Civil Rights Movement," is the tenth in a series of 10 units about Alabama state history, part of a project designed to help teachers integrate the use of primary source materials into their classrooms. Although the units are designed to augment the study of Alabama, they are useful in the study of U.S. history, world history, and the social studies in general. Each unit contains background information for the teacher and consists of several lessons. Lessons contain learning objectives, suggested activities, and documents. This unit is divided into seven sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Lesson 1: Riding the Bus Taking a Stand" (seven primary source documents); (3) "Lesson 2: Opinions of the Public" (five primary source documents); (4) "Lesson 3: Birmingham 1963" (six primary source documents); (5) "Lesson 4: Marching for Justice Selma to Montgomery: (five primary source documents); (6) "Lesson 5: Voting Rights" (three primary source documents); and (7) "General Guidelines for Analyzing a Document."
