Multicultural Education, v22 n3-4 p43-53 Spr-Sum 2015
Considering the importance of the Civil Rights Movement, children need to be introduced to the related concepts early in their school experiences, and teachers need to consider students' developmental needs and curriculum standards in order to provide appropriate content and methods of instruction. The purpose of this article is to introduce a variety of resources to support teaching and learning about the Civil Rights Movement based on the premise that concrete learning experiences permit children to build an understanding that will impact their learning, attitudes, and beliefs about diversity and multicultural education.
