Potential Contribution of Curriculum

The potential contribution of these visual collections is to enable Los Angeles-area teachers and students to explore the Civil Rights movement as it happened in this region. There is an abundance of curricula covering the Civil Rights era nationwide, principally in the Deep South and Washington, D.C., but virtually none supports a study of that era in Los Angeles. The proposed lesson plans may enable LAUSD teachers to better engage and sustain student interest in that historical time period.
