HHRC of Maine Presents Choices in Little Rock: An Approach to Teaching the Civil Rights Movement

Details
Course Type:
Workshop
Event Fee:
$75.00

In 1957, nine black teenagers faced the threats of angry mobs when they attempted to enter Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. The desegregation of Central High School ignited a crisis historian Taylor Branch describes as “the most severe test of the Constitution since the Civil War.” We will examine this key moment in U.S. history and learn new ways to engage students in the issues raised by the American civil rights movement and their implications today.

In this workshop you will:
  • Discover new interdisciplinary teaching strategies that reinforce historical and literacy skills
  • Receive a free copy of Choices in Little Rock

After this workshop you will:

  • Become part of the Facing History educator network, with access to a rich slate of educator resources, including downloadable unit and lesson plans, study guides, and multimedia
  • Be able to borrow books and DVDs through our online lending library at no cost

Cost of the event: $75 payable to the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine
