The Jim Crow Laws
Richard Velde's insight:

This is another great videos that students will be able to use when I implement the interleaved practice. This video does a great job of showing different types of segregation that occurred across the United States. The video is all images so it would be a great resource to use along with my other Jim Crow video. The images do a fantastic job showing the struggle that African Americans were going through during segregation. My hope is that students will be able to develop historical empathy after doing this activity. This video is used for interleaved practice because it is not just another lecture, or presentation, but rather it is a video where students can look at images and different media formats to better understand segregation and Jim Crow laws. I want to use this video in conjunction with the other video I have provided within this resource page. Students will freewrite what they saw in the video, and how it made them feel. This simple freewriting activity has the kids write about how they feel and build on the idea of empathy in order to build conenctions to the past. The other video does a great job of explaining Jim Crow laws, but this video gives the studetns a more in depth look at what segregation really looks like just by using images. The two resources put together, using interleaved practice and summarizing, give students a complete look into the lives of African Americans in the South and how they were affected by Jim Crow laws.

Segregation During the Civil Rights Movement
Richard Velde's insight:

This is a video that explains post Civil War south for freed African Americans. It touches on many of the Jim Crow laws that were implemented to prevent African Americans from enjoying the same amenities that white people could enjoy. Students can use this video to get both background knowledge and content knowledge on life in the south for African Americans. Using this in my class, I would have the students watch the video and then summarize what they just watched in a few sentences or paragraphs. They would then answer an analysis guide that makes sure that they are staying on track and focusing on the video. This video can be used to supplement a lesson, and can even be used in other classroom activites. As for my activity with this video, students will develop empathy for African Americans in the South during this time. This video will be played after the other video resource. My goal is to have students write about how they felt about Jim Crow laws before they look at a video explaining them. I want to capture the raw emotions of the students, and then build on their content knowledge with the second video and accompanying analysis guide.
