Museum Walk and Author’s Visit Help 8th Graders Study Civil Rights

By Chris Thompson

Mrs. Thompson's English classes participated in the annual Civil Rights Museum Walk on the last day of term two.

In conjunction with their study of Getting Away With Murder: The True Story of the Emmett Till Case, each student researched a picture from the civil rights movement and created a placard to display. As part of a post-unit study, author Chris Crowe will address students in an assembly during third period on January 28th and answer any questions they still have.

A selection of pictures and placards from the museum will be on display in Mrs. Thompson's hallway during the month of February.
