brown v. board of education


summary:
we began by looking at and discussing the image above, of elizabeth eckford trying to make her way into little rock central high school. we then stepped back to review the supreme court's decision in the plessy v. ferguson case, and how it claimed that 'separate and equal' saw constitutional. we then discussed how, even in 1964 in nyc, separate was clearly unequal, and thus that year's boycotts. we then went back to the image, and students read about the supreme court's decision in the brown v. board case, and we discussed its relationship to the plessy verdict. students then began answering a few comprehension questions about the brown case. 

homework:
finish brown v. board packet (due 11/13)
