Spring Semester Teach-in (2 lessons)
During this first Teach-In, teachers will introduce their students to the topics of social justice and racial healing through the lens of the modern Civil Rights Movement (CRM). Although students are familiar with the CRM, the BQN curriculum package is built upon NVLP’s unique one-of-a-kind webisodes or first-person visionary interviews. As a result, students are reintroduced to this important topic through the eyes and experiences of the visionaries. Using a webisode that provides an overview of the modern Civil Rights Movement, students will discuss and deconstruct Dr. King’s “I Have A Dream” speech. They will also complete a pre-evaluation worksheet that will be revisited at the end of the five months of Teach-Ins.
