Civil Rights resources for teachers
Submitted By Marcus Mrowka
Share My Lesson, the nation's largest online community of educators, invites all educators to celebrate the legacy of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom by bringing it alive in the classroom through a newly created collection of free lessons and classroom materials about the historic event and civil rights movement.
"Share My Lesson's efforts to compile useful and effective lessons and classroom materials on the civil rights movement ensures the legacy created on Aug. 28, 1963, by those 250,000 marchers is kept alive," said Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT). "The purpose is to teach students to celebrate the civil rights accomplishments of the past 50 years as well as empower them to identify and stand up against injustice today."
