Let Your Motto Be Resistance: African American Portraits

Students compare and contrast historic and contemporary photographs of African American figures. In this history instructional activity, students study six photographs of different African American historical figures and sort them according to when they were taken; "then" or "now." Students are then asked in depth observational questions about the attire and mood of the people in the photographs.

Lesson Planet provides plans that are a snap to personalize or utilize as is. Providing rigor and relevance the lessons are an excellent resource. I highly recommend LP for both the new teacher and the well seasoned pedagogue.
