Civil Rights Seminar Planning Doc

Instead of an Exam for this Unit, we will be having a large group Seminar during
Live Class during Week 13 (Wednesday, April 10). Attendance is mandatory. If you
are going to miss the Seminar, you must email Mr. Gilbert immediately and get a
make-up assignment.
Complete this Planning Doc using the sources provided and your textbook by
Seminar Day.

What’s our purpose?

● To participate in a thoughtful discussion on topics, issues and connections based on
Historical themes and concepts, more specifically on the topic of Civil Rights
● Every student will speak at least twice (minimum expectation). To earn more points,
students will be able to speak more, tap out and take turns speaking, and respond in
their notebooks during the discussion. This is a student led discussion.
● Points will also be earned through preparation before the discussion, active participation,
and speaking/discussing/writing.
● There will be teacher-posed questions and questions that students bring to the
discussion. You should review and spend some time thinking about the questions that
are most interesting to you.
● You will be responsible for bringing at least three thoughts or questions about
each of the movements discussed to the Seminar.
● Note: This is not a debate.

Resources - The resources we will use will be given during live classes leading up to our
Seminar Day. If you missed live class it is your responsibility to email Mr. Gilbert to
get caught up. I will continue to add to the Source Document as we move forward.
