Learning Target #2:

What are you learning?

Why are you learning it?

To know how you can peacefully protest when my rights are not being protected.

 

How will you know when you have learned it?

When you can describe three examples of how people peacefully protested. .  


 

Alone or Partner Work:  Make a copy of the following document and share it with me.  Answer the questions as you watch and listen to the videos. 

 

Task 1:  Walkout

 


Task 2:  Rosa Parks was not the first black woman to refuse to give up her seat on a bus.  But, in 1955, when Rosa Parks did not give up her seat to a white man, this sparked a major protest that helped start  the civil rights movement. Local leaders led a long, nonviolent boycott of the bus system that eventually forced the bus company to desegregate its buses.

Review the questions and notice which one is highlighted on your paper. That is the one you have to be able to answer after the video. 

 

1.  What was the last name of the woman who planned the bus boycott? 

 

2.  Who was the newcomer who came toView Page Montgomery to help lead the boycott? 

3.  What was one thing African Americans did to help people get to work? 

4.  Describe what some of the white people did to help. 

5.  How many days did the bus boycott last? 

 


 

Task 3:  Read the following and then watch the video. 

In 1960 a group of black college students in Greensboro, N.C., insisted on being served a meal at a segregated lunch counter. The store refused to serve them lunch so they refused to leave. This was one of the first of the civil rights movement’s many sit-ins, a form of nonviolent protest in which participants enter a business or public place and remain seated until they are forcibly removed or their complaints solved.  

Review the questions and notice which one is highlighted on your paper. That is the one you have to be able to answer after the video. 

1.  What was the name of the store where the protest took place and what was the date the protest started? 

2.  On the first day of the sit-in, what did the policeman do? 

3.  After the first day, what did the students do? 

4.    What did the sit-ins in Greensboro cause to happen other towns? 

5. What did the original store get turned into?
