3 Copyright 2012 New Dimension Media Teacher Notes: Lesson Assessment In this lesson students will learn how to research an era, identify an influential person/event and summarize the STORY about this responding to five key requirements. CCC! programs provide students with background information from the first 120 years of the Civil Rights movement. After showing each program, complete a summary with the whole class including naming the person/event, describing the influential aspect of this person/event, identifying the precursor (event), explaining the outcome(s) and the impact on America. Together write a “tweet” about the LESSON that is important to remember. Student practice this summarization technique after being assigned a year between 1994 and today to research one influential person/event from that year. They write their “tweet” last. As an assessment, use slide 13 individually with students. Pose the key question, “Who do you think will be one of the most influential individuals in 2014 that will have a positive impact on mankind’s continual quest to achieve civil rights for all in America?” Students must predict who/what will happen in their summary and end by writing a tweet about the LESSON that will be learned.
