This resource is a lesson plan focused on the role of the media in the Civil Rights movement. Students analyze images, headlines, and cartoons from the time period with the whole class and then individually to gain a better understanding of the topic. The lesson plan includes a guiding question, objectives, standards (Florida), methods, detailed procedures, a PowerPoint with content and links, and much more. For the final assessment, students are expected to write a two or three page paper comparing the use of the media on civil rights issues in the 1950s and 1960s with the media today. While this is an appropriate assignment based on the unit, it would be necessary to provide students with more background information on civil rights issues today as well as more specific guidance on what to include in the paper.
