Baseball: The Tenth Inning - Bases Divided

This Baseball: The Tenth Inning - Bases Divided lesson plan also includes:

Baseball is a relatively high-interest topic through which social studies classes can explore racial prejudice in the US. Video clips provide much of the background information that groups record on their handout and then share with the class. This leads to a discussion on the treatment of African Americans after the Civil War through the 1900s, and other considerations that impacted their acceptance into the major leagues. Once learners have a strong historical foundation for this topic, they are invited to consider whether they now live in a society in which race is not important. They take a position on this topic and write a persuasive essay. This thorough lesson includes everything you'll need, including a rubric and standards.
