African-Americans in the American West

Students explore the westward movement of African Americans. In this social studies lesson, students view PBS specials on the westward movement, discuss them, then work in collaborative groups to research a subtopic of the movement. After completing the research, each group will create accompanying documents from the time period, then graph and analyze population figures of the time period.

I was an intern last year. I didn't always have the time to look at the files of other teachers at 10pm at night. LessonPlanet saved me so many times I've lost count. I would look all over other websites for quality lesson plans and, no surprise, I always ended up here.
