Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Rosa Parks - Section 5: Closure


The student-led inquiry at the beginning of the lesson after the role play helped students to not only generate their own questions of Rosa Parks, but it helped them gain insight as to why she refused to give up her seat.  It was very important to me that I got my students to develop the conceptual understanding of how the fight for equal rights for black people would cause equal rights for all people of color.  It was also important that I got my students to understand that although Rosa Parks is considered the Mother of a Movement, she was only one of many who fought and some even lost their lives during the Civil Rights Movement.
