Teaching about Emmett Till

Teaching about Emmett Till | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

"In memory, Emmett Till (July 25, 1941 – August 28, 1955). Lynched this day in history. Till was crucified by the mainstream press. Headlines from newspapers such as the Washington Post referred to him as the 'Wolf-Whistler.' (A 9/19/1955 article in the Post begins: 'Two white men, accused of killing a wolf-whistling Negro boy, went on trial in a steamy Mississippi Delta courtroom today, their two-year-old boys in their laps.' Till's mother's courageous decision, to have an open casket funeral and share photos of his mutilated body with the world, helped inspire the modern civil rights movement."


Via Seth Dixon, Mike Busarello's Digital Textbooks
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

This is a part of my personal history remembrance. At the time there was no press that reported on this. Just JET Magazine and the black newspapers the Journal and Guide. The pictures were so unusual that we all gasped. The body was repulsively mutilated. I can still see the images in my mind.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 29, 9:18 AM

Revisionist history would have us imagine that the Civil Rights movement was not triggered by moments of horrific miscarriages of justice; this was one of those galvinizing events.  Here are classroom resources about Emmett Till (A key primary document is the Look Magazine interview with the murderers).

Jo Blannin - Innovative Learning's curator insight, August 26, 7:48 PM

Love this infographic - walks students (Grade 5 +) through the use of Google search strategies. I've put this up in the classroom so that I can refer to it. With primary school kids, its not really a 'work alone' resource but it is great for using as a reference point to direct their research and search skills.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, August 26, 11:30 PM

A great infographic to remind kids on how to find precisely what they are looking for. Remember, Google is not a person - do not ask it questions! Instead, use precise keywords and get familiar with the Advanced tools.
