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."

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).

It is our expectation that todays volatile memories will be replaced by non-volatile memories in most applications within 10 years, resulting in major power savings, faster boot ups and new capabilities. With MRAM there is a possibility that with a move away from current to spin based circuits that processing and memory can be combined in the same device, creating even greater capabilities.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 18, 9:44 PM

Finding great educational videos takes time...so I am always excited when I find a list of suggested video. Jackie Gerstein shares her top 11. They range from just over three minutes to about seventeen minutes. Below is  a list of the videos.

* Malala Yousuf Nobel Prize Speech

* Carol Dweck: The Power of Believing You Can Improve

* Sir Ken Robinson: Can Creativity Be Taught

* President Obama on the Whitehouse Maker Faire

* Toxic Culture of Education: Joshua Katz

* The necessity of the student voice | Catherine Zhang

* Rethinking Learning in the Digital Age – Mitchel Resnick

* If I Knew Then: A Letter to Me on My First Day Teaching

* Kid President Throws a Surprise Party for a Retiring Teacher

* Erzah French: Sportskid of the Year

* Malcolm Mitchell Book Club

You will find brief descriptions for most of these videos and I suspect that many will choose to watch all of them over a period of time. You may find one or two that would be great to share at a faculty meeting.

There is a link that takes one to the original post.

 

“Those who implement changes in assessment, grading, professional practices and policies risk not only confrontation, but also unpopularity, social isolation, public humiliation, and ultimately, even their livelihoods.”


I experienced the isolation for many years without even being aware of it. Being different in School is not a good place to be.
