Civil Rights Historical Investigations

The American Civil Rights Movement was a watershed moment for our nation. This workshop will explore ways to engage students in the issues raised by this moment in history. By studying the choices that led to critical episodes in that struggle, students learn to analyze history using a lens of how identity, group membership, ethics, and moral judgements have influenced historical events and they also learn to connect this history meaningfully to contemporary events.

In this workshop you will:

  • Discover new interdisciplinary teaching strategies that reinforce historical and literacy skills

  • Explore topics such as historical memory, justice, and civic participation in a democracy


After this workshop you will:

  • Become part of the Facing History educator network, with access to a rich slate of educator resources, including unit and lesson plans, study guides, and multimedia
