Race, Language and Separation

Sixth graders discuss the idea of separation in today's society. In groups, they examine the laws used in the past with a focus on "separate, but equal". They review the Brown v. Board of Education case and determine if it caused or solved more problems. To end the lesson, they examine the experiences of immigrants and how their language kept them separate from the population as well.
