Rosa Parks: Can One Person Make a Difference?

This lesson plan, designed for use in grades 4-6, uses primary sources from the LOC.gov website to stimulate analysis and critical thinking to create background knowledge for student reading of an autobiographical account of Rosa Parks' historic action challenging segregation on buses in 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama. It challenges students to decide if Rosa Parks really acted alone and leads them into discovery of the many others whose actions helped create The Civil Rights Movement. The culminating activity pairs students to research, summarize, and give a presentation about an additional important Civil Rights event. #VegasPBS-INST342
