This Understanding Charlotte Hawkins Brown's Rules for School lesson plan also includes:
"When called on to recite, always make some sort of reply don't sit dumbly in the seat and say nothing." "Don't mistake the classroom for a lunchroom or a bedroom." After reading "A Brief Overview of Progressive Education" class members read Charlotte Hawkins Brown's "Rules for School" and complete a graphic organizer that asks them to select three rules from Brown's list, explain how the rules fit into progressive education, and how they reflect racism in America. Consider expanding the activity with small-group and whole-class discussions, as well as with the suggested essay.
