From NY to Texas, KKK recruits with candies and fliers Your video will begin momentarily. Ku Klux Klan recruitment fliers are turning up on driveways across the countryFliers, usually left with candies, appear to be part of a wider recruitment effortThe Klan may be seizing on a time when race and immigration are dominant issues, some say (CNN) -- Carlos Enrique Londoño laughs at the Ku Klux Klan recruitment flier recently left on the driveway of his suburban New York home. It's unlikely the group would accept him. "I'm Colombian and dark-skinned," said Londoño, a painter and construction worker who has lived in Hampton Bays on Long Island for 30 years. The flier was tucked into a plastic bag along with a membership application, the address for the KKK national office in North Carolina, a list of beliefs and three Jolly Rancher candies. Gen. Actors in the silent film "The Birth of a Nation," released in 1915, portrayed Ku Klux Klan members dressed in full regalia and riding horses. Klan members march in a parade in Washington in 1927.

Desegregation The Civil Rights Movement is sometimes defined as a struggle against racial segregation that began in 1955 when Rosa Parks, the "seamstress with tired feet," refused to give up her seat to a white man on a bus in Alabama. Brown v. Board of Education, the 1954 Supreme Court case that attacked the notion of "separate but equal," has also been identified as the catalyst for this extraordinary period of organized boycotts, student protests, and mass marches. These legendary events, however, did not cause the modern Civil Rights Movement, but were instead important moments in a campaign of direct action that began two decades before the first sit-in demonstration. The story of the American Civil Rights Movement is one of those tales that is told again and again and again, often with a few protagonists, a couple of key events, and one dramatic conclusion. Right? Well, not really. Absolutely. So, when did that movement emerge and how? Nope. Without a doubt!
ESL Writers Workshop: Weighing an Argument Weighing an Argument A Young ESL Writers' Workshop Part I: Students examine the pros and cons of electing their teachers. Using these pros and cons, they weigh the argument of whether students should elect their teachers or not. They then choose individual topics and apply the same kind of analysis. Preparation: Homework to be completed before class: Photocopy the Election Vocabulary worksheet and Green Party campaign poster. Note: Students are asked to choose one of four candidates, if they choose candidate #1, you might want to question whether the candidate is likely to keep his or her promise. For class: Print and photocopy the worksheet titled Weighing an Argument. Introduction: Note: Do not handout the sheet Weighing an Argument yet. Quickly go over the homework that was assigned the previous class. Ask students how much they weigh or how much things around them weigh. Now ask students what "pros" means and what "cons" means. Activity 1: Write the topic: Preparatory Homework: In Class Pros:
"Black Power" Era The impressive March on Washington in the summer of 1963 has been remembered as one of the great successes of the Civil Rights Movement, a glorious high point in which a quarter of a million people—black and white—gathered at the nation's capital to demonstrate for "freedom now." But for many African Americans, especially those living in inner-city ghettos who discovered that nonviolent boycotts and sit-ins did little to alter their daily lives, the great march of 1963 marked only the first stage of a new, more radical phase of the Civil Rights Movement. You probably just finished reading the first chapter of the Civil Rights Movement. (Hint, hint.) Isn't it incredible how much had been accomplished by civil rights activists from World War II to the 1963 March on Washington? Isn't it staggering just how much had been sacrificed, how high the stakes had been raised, and how widespread the movement had become? Let's quickly review some highlights. How can this be? Not exactly.
No Limit – ett försök att tänka utanför skolan | Hanna Fjeld I Borås har vi förärats med en fantastisk Street Art-festival, No Limit. Nationella och internationella konstnärer har smyckat gator och torg med grymma målningar och några mindre skulpturer. Det föll sig så väl att vi i år 7 läste en text om grafitti i vår Textbook Happy just denna vecka då No Limit hade vernissage. En ren slump faktiskt, men så här i efterhand en vällyckad slump. Jag la en lektion på att ta med mig mina två 7:or ner till stan för en kortare rundvandring där vi hann se 6-7 konstverk. Eftersom det då var något oklart huruvida konstverken skulle få finns kvar i framtiden eller målas över så kreerade jag en skrivuppgift för eleverna utifrån detta aktuella dilemma. Som hjälp fick de några stödstrukturer: NO LIMIT-LETTERWrite a letter to the politicians in Borås where you explain why or why not the municipality (kommun) of Borås should keep the No Limit-exhibition for the future. /Hanna
Veterans of the Civil Rights Movement -- Literacy Tests Literacy Tests & Voter Applications Alabama Georgia Louisiana: Mississippi South Carolina Background Today, most citizens register to vote without regard to race or color by signing their name and address on something like a postcard. Prior to passage of the federal Voting Rights Act in 1965, Southern states maintained elaborate voter registration procedures deliberately designed to deny the vote to nonwhites. This process was often referred to as a "literacy test," a term that had two different meanings — one specific and one general. The more general use of "literacy test" referred to the complex, interlocking systems used to deny Afro-Americans (and in some regions, Latinos and Native Americans) the right to vote so as to ensure that political power remained exclusively white-only. Poll taxes. While in theory there were standard state-wide registration procedures, in real-life the individual county Registrars and clerks did things their own way. — © Bruce Hartford

African-American Civil Rights Movement (1954–68) The African-American Civil Rights Movement or 1960s Civil Rights Movement encompasses social movements in the United States whose goals were to end racial segregation and discrimination against black Americans and to secure legal recognition and federal protection of the citizenship rights enumerated in the Constitution and federal law. This article covers the phase of the movement between 1954 and 1968, particularly in the South. A wave of inner city riots in black communities from 1964 through 1970 undercut support from the white community. The emergence of the Black Power movement, which lasted from about 1966 to 1975, challenged the established black leadership for its cooperative attitude and its nonviolence, and instead demanded political and economic self-sufficiency. During the same time as African Americans were being disenfranchised, white Democrats imposed racial segregation by law. Violence against blacks increased, with numerous lynchings through the turn of the century.
Att skriva en argumenterande text på engelska En argumenterande text går ut på att du ska övertyga dina läsare om att din åsikt är den rätta eller att du ska försöka få dina läsare att handla på ett visst sätt.

I förväg vill jag att ni har läst igenom detta inlägg och sett filmen. Lektionstid kommer vi arbeta med detta på engelska. Jag kommer att hjälpa er med ord och med exempel på hur det blir på engelska. Det finns en del som man måste tänka på för att texten ska bli bra: 1. 3.

What can Teachers Learn from Nelson Mandela to Make a Difference? We teach language to help people communicate. Why do people want to communicate? To express the human story through myth, inspiration and powerful transformation. Let’s dig deeper into the story of Nelson Mandela and help our students think, communicate and become active narrators in the search for peace and what makes us human. What can we teach students about Nelson Mandela through the power of video and multi-media? Let’s dig a little deeper to find out;) 1) The Video: I chose this BBC video as a modern day look at Mandela’s legacy beyond South Africa. Then we ask questions and dig a lot deeper. Beyond politics, what other dark forces in our human nature perpetuate the kinds of violence and prejudice that can seem to be so innate in humanity as to be chilling to the core. When we stare into the black hole of violence and face the shadow side of life, how do we remain optimistic, inspired and willing to risk all for the common good? Our better natures. Where are they when we need them?
