New Edition of Putting the Movement Back Into Civil Rights Teaching

selma-lesson-movementAs one of the most commonly taught stories of people’s struggles for social justice, the Civil Rights Movement has the capacity to help students develop a critical analysis of United States history and strategies for change. However, the empowering potential is often lost in a trivial pursuit of names and dates.

Putting the Movement Back into Civil Rights Teaching, published by Teaching for Change and PRRAC, provides lessons and articles for K-12 educators on how to go beyond a heroes approach to the Civil Rights Movement.

Teaching for Change will publish a new edition of the award-winning Putting the Movement Back into Civil Rights Teaching this year. The content will be completely re-organized and much of the material will be new.
