Living the Story | Civil Rights Webquest As part of the Living the Story project, Jean McComb of the Kentucky Department of Education has developed a multi-part webquest for middle and high school students in which, working individually and in teams, they research life in their community during the civil rights era, take part in a role-playing discussion about civil rights issues based on their research, and create individual and group presentations on what they have learned. This page summarizes the classroom project and its educational objectives. The evaluation page gives specifics about assessment and includes additional hints for the teacher. Students taking part in the webquest should first read the historical background, then the detailed instructions. Both students and teachers may consult the webquest resources page for web sites, publications, and videos that will help in the research phase.

Immediately after the Kent State shooting (sometimes referred to as the "Kent State Massacre") on May 4, 1970, Neil Young composed the song "Ohio" after looking at photos appearing in Life magazine and then taking a walk in the woods. Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young went to the studio and recorded the song which was released to radio stations shortly after the killings. Soon, the lyrics "Four dead in Ohio" became an anthem to a generation. Neil Young Ohio Lyric Analysis

This is especially true of political cartoons, which can make a powerful statement but can, at the same time, be complicated to understand. Guide your students through this process the first time. It is useful to teach students how to deconstruct the cartoon.
