Celebrate Black History Month with Project C’s Electronic Field Trips

Project C: Lessons from the American Civil Rights Movement, a three-year series of electronic field trips taking place throughout the civil rights fiftieth anniversary years of 2013-2015, focuses on the role of citizenship in a democracy through the study of historical events.  It examines the past to teach the importance of civic engagement in support of a humane, civil and just society.

You’ll find free teacher resources for grades 7-12 from Teaching About Ferguson:  Race and Racism in the United States to a student study of the fiftieth anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery March and its connection to the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  You can learn more at the Project C website and access resources there, including an Issue Guide — a companion piece created to encourage open discussions and civic engagement by highlighting important events and actions within the civil rights movement.
