Baseball: The Tenth Inning

Bring the historical relevance of baseball into the classroom, as pupils discover the lessons learned from the breaking of baseball's color barrier by Jackie Robinson. Learners view video and analyze Robinson’s character, as well as his contributions to baseball and civil rights. From their findings, they create character sketches for Robinson and many of the people who surrounded him. The sketches help with producing historical skits that display the important moments from Robinson’s life. It includes quality worksheets for each activity, and a rubric for the skits. The resource can be modified to include a creative writing assignment instead of skits.
