The three teachers who presented the “class” on “Democracy and Women’s Rights in America: The Fight over the ERA” will be teaching another lesson. This time Matt Flynn and James Hoey from Beloit Memorial High School, and Frank Crivello, retired teacher from Clinton Community School District, will demonstrate the methodology learned at Harvard Business School to teach Martin Luther King and the Struggle for Black Voting Rights (1965). “The case traces the long history of black disenfranchisement and racial segregation in the United States, from the Reconstruction Era to the 1960s. It describes the various strategies employed by civil rights activists, with special emphasis on the civil disobedience protests of the modern Civil Rights Movement.”
Those who elect to attend the “class” will be sent information about the case study so that you will be able to prepare prior to the instruction. Using this methodology, the students or we, the audience, will engage in rigorous, evidence-based debate to draw out the key concepts of each case.
Please remember to register on the library’s website to join what will be an interesting “class” to review the Civil Rights Movement.
