New Accessible Civics Lesson Plan:
This is a great simple civics lesson with three distinctive case studies: marchers with disabilities who took over federal buildings in a historic sit-in in 1977 (504 disability legislation protests), young American volunteers in the Spanish Civil war in 1936, and a 12-year-old mill worker who was inspired to lead a walk-out in 1898. Follow the links for information and access to the lessons. (Search and find dozens more exemplary, accessible, free lessons on a variety of topics at Emerging America Teaching Resources.)
