Students will perform a picture analysis. Afterwards, a passage will be read from a narrative in Frederick Douglass’ My Bondage and My Freedom and then complete the Pick-a-Pair worksheet.
Students will perform research for political cartoons and analyze their features and significance. Web browsing will be implemented as well as spiral-question analysis in order to complete the first segment of the activity. Further assessment includes a brief writing assignment.
Students will perform a webquest on the Tulsa Riots of 1921 and other historic tragedies as well as perform comparisons. Critical thinking will allow students to develop a deeper understanding of tragedies and consider approaches to societal problems through discussion and presentation.
