Guys, you will be on your own today and tomorrow, while I'm conducting the USH workshop, but if you need to see me I will be in E170 (computer lab in Fine Arts building).

APUSH >>> "Si Se Puede!"..."Yes, We Can! Do you know who came up with this rally cry for the Latino Labor Movement?
Today, in observance of Cesar Chavez, Martin Luther King Jr. and the many other Civil Rights Leaders of the 1950s-1960s, we are take time to recognize three Latina women that have played important roles in fighting inequality who stood for groups of underrepresented Americans.
Dolores Huerta - American Labor and Civil Rights Leader
Sonia Sotomayor & Selena Quintanilla
"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.
