Lesson Preparation

This lesson emphasizes small group work. Determine the composition for the small groups prior to the first class period.

The lesson's first two class periods require computers connected to the Internet. To save time, begin the lesson offline. To begin offline, print and photocopy the Timeline that accompanies African American Perspectives, 1818-1907.

Consider downloading primary sources for use when an internet connection is unavailable.
