26 Civil Rights Protest Pt. 1

What are you learning?   I can describe what segregation or "Jim Crow" laws  look like. 

 

Why are you learning it?   To understand what the civil rights movement was about. 

 

How will you know when you have learned it?  When you can describe  three examples of segregation or "Jim Crow" laws.   (Give specific examples). 

Bad response:   Segregation treated black people like dirt.  It was a mean and

cruel thing to do.  Whites and blacks were not allowed to be in a lot of the same places. 
 

Proficient Answers: 

 

Example 1:  Blacks not being able to use the same restroom.  Blacks having to sit in the back of a bus.  Blacks not being able to go to work in some places. 

 

Example 2:  Colored people had to deal with many different types of segregation.  One type of segregation is they couldn't use the same bathroom or drinking from the same water fountain as whites.  Also, some places wouldn't hire people if they were colored.  A lot of restaurants wouldn't let colored people eat there. 

 

Example 3:  Three examples of segregation are that blacks and whites couldn't drink out of the same water fountain.  Another example of segregation could be that some restaurants don't serve black people at all because of their color.  The last example of many is that in parks or even on some streets, there could be a store or farmers market with signs that said : "No dogs, negroes, blacks, mexicans, chinese, etc. all because of segregation.
