The Other Civil Rights Movement

Target Student Group: Grade 11, United States History

Lesson Context: Introduction

Lesson Delivery: Flipped Instruction

Instructional Intent: This Google form will be used to achieve instructional intent by providing students with an engaging introduction to the American Indian Movement. While students are learning about the Civil Rights Movement, which they likely will have learned about before 11th grade, I also want them to learn about the AIM which they likely will have not learned about yet. The two sources provide an insight into the type of content that AIM was creating and how it was being covered by media. This lesson will ask students to use their contextualization skills as they will be thinking about how AIM fit into the broader Civil Rights Movement and thinking about why it never gained as much traction as the movement for Black civil rights.
