Teaching for Change offers several mythbuster quizzes that are designed to challenge assumptions and deepen understanding. These quizzes are not to be used as a “test,” instead they offer a chance to explore myths about history and inspire further learning. Each response includes links to sources to learn more. While students are engaged in remote learning, they could take one or more quizzes and use them as a springboard for disucussion. Students could also use the format to write their own mythbuster quizzes about other periods in U.S. history or their hometown. Please let us know if they do and/or if you find any corrections needed for the quizzes.
Note that four of these quizzes are about the Civil Rights Movement. They were developed as a companion to the print and online guide, Putting the Movement Back into Civil Rights Teaching.
