Civil Rights and Mini Lesson Maps

Civil Rights and Mini Lesson Maps

It’s officially Summer Break around the United States! You did it! You made it through what was probably the most challenging school year yet!

Since most of us aren’t in the classroom, the weekly newsletters are going to be a little bit different over Summer. I’m going to focus on providing extra assistance in distance learning, focusing on standards aligned content you can use in your 2021-22 curriculum maps, and beyond!

This week I wanted to highlight our newest series, mini Lesson Maps. These Mini Lessons take a student through a series of interactive activities to fully explore a topic, and at the end they teach it to someone else!

What are they?

These lessons are appropriate for grades 6-12 and allow the student to learn at their own pace! Each lesson has a Virtual Field Trip that takes students on an informative journey across a map to introduce the topic. A visual analysis portion and a reading activity follow to further critical thinking and conceptual understanding. Finally, students will summarize their learning. Additionally, each lesson is skill-based and aligned to Common Core State Standards.

 

How does my student use them?

Scrolling through the LessonMap will guide students through the questions and resources to develop skills and knowledge in the topic area. The lessons finish with the challenge of teaching it to someone at home. We want to encourage students to stay connected and sharing their achievements outside of the classroom environment.

 

What Standards are covered?

Each lesson covers the following skill-based standards; CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.6.2; CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.6.3; CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH.6-8.2; CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH.6-8.7

The Civil Rights Movement

With everything going on in our country this week, it would be a good opportunity for your students to explore the topic of Civil Rights and understand the importance of the right to protest and the history of the civil rights movement.
