Civil Rights - Song Analysis Project (Blowin' in the Wind by Bob Dylan)
This 4 page Civil Rights teaching resource contains a project that requires students to analyze the song Blowin' in the Wind by Bob Dylan and the ways in which it relates to the overall events of the Civil Rights Movement. The famous song became an anthem of the Civil Rights era and is an excellent tool for student analysis in order to show their interpretive skills and their ability to relate a source to the events of the Civil Rights Movement.
Students create a trifold brochure about a Civil Rights Movement hero using these meaningful lesson plans. Texts and lesson sessions for Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Ruby Bridges, & Jackie Robinson. 4th-6th grade
