U.S. History & Civics Presentations

See how informed, engaged, & passionate our students are!

Presentations taking place in TWO WEEKS!

The Civil Rights Movement of the 1960's was one of the most significant periods in modern United States' history, and deserves to be studied in detail. Over the last two weeks, we have learned about and researched people, places, and events significant to this time time period. To end this unit, students have been divided into groups and tasked with coming up an activism plan pertaining to a social injustice that is relevant today. Each group will give a 10-15 minute presentation which will address what the issue is, who is affected by their issue, when and why this became an issue, and how to go about making positive change.

Questions? Concerns?

The purpose of this project was to give students experience in handling sensitive issues, and to show how difficult it was for Civil Rights leaders to do what they did. The issues addressed by these projects were chosen because they are sensitive. The atmosphere is intended to be constructive and positive. If you have questions or concerns, please contact me.
