Students will read "A Mighty Long Way" written by Carlotta Walls LaNier in the ELA classroom to study the U.S. Civil Rights Movement, focusing particularly on The Little Rock Nine. They will consider the question "How can stories be powerful?" as they learn about segregation, the civil rights movement, and The Little Rock Nine. Students will discover how photographs tell a story and capture key events in time and preserve moments in history. While reading this memoir, students will build background knowledge as they study the history of segregation, and write an informational essay about how different mediums may illuminate or provide an inaccurate picture of a story. For their final task, students will present a song choice for a film soundtrack and four photographs to lift up as key events based on "A Mighty Long Way".
