This workshop features new educational materials developed by the Rhode Island Historical Society for a larger National Park Service funded project partnering with the Rhode Island Black Heritage Society and the Rhode Island Historical Preservation and Heritage Commission. Two new unit plans, one for the elementary levels, and one for the middle school levels, use primary source materials including written documents, photographs, audio clips from oral histories, and video clips from news reels, to supplement Civil Rights curriculum with local examples. Lessons include graphic organizers and questions to guide student analysis of the primary resources. Primary sources span sub-topics on issues in housing, employment, and education. Workshop participants will work through select lessons. Although the two unit plans are geared for elementary and middle grades, high school teachers are invited to attend. Two additional units for high school levels are being developed for release in the fall. There may be an opportunity to preview that work by the time of TeacherFest.
