"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere..."
This week we will be discussing the different people, movements and events that shaped the Modern Civil Rights Movement that took place between 1954-1968.
First, look at the slide below and with your group, respond to the two questions on the dry-erase boards. (5 minutes)
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. described this place as "the most segregated city in the United States..." Think how the events that took place in Birmingham affected the Civil Rights Movement across the nation.
Next, when instructed, your group will use the game pieces and chart provided to identify seven Who's Who people of the Civil Rights movement. First team to correctly get their pieces in order, wins a treat!
APUSH >>> Today, we begin looking at the Civil Rights Movement of the "Turbulent" 1960's. As we all well-know, despite American Principles of egalitarianism, liberty and pluralism...there are deep-rooted American ties to less-than-equitable rights for Americans who are not white. We will look and investigate this era and what ground was gained in the name of equality and what more needs to be done in our time!
Regarding civil/race relations, your group will make a quick timeline of civil rights events from 1954 to 1964. You must include time-place and brief description of at least the following:
Lydon B. Johnson
Martin Luther King
John F. Kennedy
Civil Rights Act
Brown vs. Board of Education
March on Washington
Montgomery Bus Boycotts
Little Rock Nine
APUSH >>> Today, we will look at the Cuban Missile Crisis from three different and often opposing point-of-views.
Using the video and link above you will:
Title your google doc - The Cuban Missile Crisis/Armageddon Letters.
1) When did the Cuban Missile Crisis take place? What three states (nations) were primarily involved in the "CMC" aka Cuban Missile Crisis? Who were the heads of state for each nation?
2) What strategies did the United States use to try to contain communism or prevent Soviet influence over Cuba? What options does the video address in what the Soviet and Cuban leaders can and end up doing in response to American intervention?
3) You need to include a brief profile of the three heads of state addressing:
A) Background-what previous experiences did each man have that influenced their political careers?
B) When in what circumstances did each man rise to head of state?
C) State their role in the CMC and any foreign policies they are associated with.
We will address the development of an American society based on conformity and greatly influenced by the Cold War's Race & Space Races.
****The slides below range from the Yalta Conf. to Domestic Policies under Eisenhower.****
APUSH >>> For those of you who were not able to come to my class the Friday before Spring Break, you have until tomorrow 4:30 pm to make up the 9-Weeks Exam. For all Reading Quizzes, Make-Up Assignments through-out this last grading period...you must have them in by tomorrow as well. I will be here after-school, during lunch and before-school to accommodate your busy, busy schedules!
Emerging Cold War
Any hope of peaceful postwar cooperation between the U.S. and the Soviet Union had all but disappeared by the time the Allied Powers accepted the Axis Powers' surrender in 1945. By the end of WWII, wartime partnership that existed between the United States and the Soviet Union was disintegrating into a struggle between two nations with opposing political, economic, and social ideologies.
Today, we will look at the origins of the Cold War, the differences between the American and Soviet ideologies as stated in the Truman Doctrine and how the post-WWII globe aligned behind these two superpowers for what will be over four decades.

You will work individually, COMPARING AND CONTRASTING these two notable groups and contribute your findings to our class posters distinguishing both groups.
When comparing and contrasting, you are to research for both unique traits and commonalities, such as:
-When did these groups form? When did notable battles, feats and other events take place?
-Who were these groups, representative of what branches of the military?
-Where did these groups fight and where did members of the groups originate from?
-Why are members of each of these groups exceptional, what racial breakthroughs did they accomplish with their service?
