Product Description: As one of the most commonly taught stories of people's struggles for social justice, the Civil Rights Movement has the capacity to help students develop a critical analysis of United States history and strategies for change. However, the empowering potential is often lost in a trivial pursuit of names and dates. Putting the Movement Back into Civil Rights Teaching provides lessons and articles for classrooms and communities on how to go beyond a heroes approach to the Civil Rights Movement. The book includes interactive and interdisciplinary lessons, readings, writings, photographs, graphics, and interviews, with sections on education, economic justice, citizenship, culture, and reflections on teaching about the Civil Rights Movement. The book features lessons on the role of women in the Movement and makes connections to Chicano, Asian, Native American and international struggles for social justice.
