Abstract:
Students will be appointed to a task force by the Kansas State Historical Society Board of Directors. They will use the anniversary of Brown v. Topeka Board of Education to educate and raise community awareness of the Civil Rights Movement. Based on what the students learn, they will address one issue facing Kansas today in the area of Civil Rights and report back to the Board.

This performance assessment will include a written product and an oral presentation. The unit is directly correlated with State Social Studies Standards and meets the curriculum goals of our district as well as one of our building goals.
