Civil Liberties Project (3-5 Days)

This is a four to five day civil liberties project where students are assigned one minority group in the United States and trace the history of discrimination to the fight for equal rights of that group. The United States has always been home to many different racial and ethnic groups that have experienced varying degrees of acceptance into American society. For this project, you will assess the “journey” of one of those groups throughout U.S. history with a special focus on the recent issues facing the group.

This project has two options: a powerpoint project or a documentary film option. I personally do the documentary film option if I have time. The projects are a lot of fun and kids really enjoy it. There is a rubric attached to grade both assignments. Both projects were designed in Word and can be adapted to your classroom.

Task: Using the review book, textbook, the handout provided, and the Internet, your task is to create a 5-7 minute multimedia presentation.

Project Topics:

  1. African Americans
  2. Native Americans
  3. Latino Rights
  4. Asian Pacific Islanders
  5. Women
  6. Older Americans
  7. Disabled American
  8. LGBTQ Rights
