As a culminating activity to our Civics Unit, students applied the Bill of Rights (1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 9th Amendments) to the PBS documentary, The Murder of Emmett Till. Students were actively engaged throughout the documentary and also recognized models of civic virtue. Mamie Till, Moses Wright, and Willie Reed were the heroes that most students connected with and Chris in A period succinctly stated that Emmett was the biggest hero because his death was the spark of the Civil Rights Movement.
