TEACHING THE FREEDOM STRUGGLE
The following “teaching modules” were created by the students of the 2019 section of “All Power to the People!” They are reflective of our commitment to promoting understanding of postwar movements for racial justice.
Each module is geared toward a high school classroom and comes complete with materials, suggested activities, and resources for learning more. Each is also aligned with Common Core Standards as well as Reading Standards for Literacy in History/Social Science.
We invite you to share these with interested educators!
