Come join Mrs. Rebecca in this class to learn about how ordinary children, like you, made an extraordinary difference in our nation.

In this lesson, students will learn about the Little Rock Nine from Central High in Little Rock, Arkansas.  We will begin by learning about school segregation, which was finally declared unconstitutional with Brown v. Board of Education.  From there, students will learn how many schools in the south ignored the Supreme Court ruling.  They will also learn how political leaders became road blocks for school integration.  

The lesson will progress to the actual series of events involving the nine students who successfully attended Central High School.  We will read about how brave they were when mistreated by white students.  We will learn about some of their accomplishes later in life.  

All through class, we will read informative texts, and Mrs. Rebecca will facilitate discussion about the topic.  Students will be encouraged, but not required, to participate in our discussions all through class.  

This class is recommended for kids in grades 4-8

Rebecca FosterMrs. Rebecca loves the quote, “Teaching isn’t my job. It’s my passion.” She has had this passion from the beginning. Her teddy bears learned a lot, with her bedroom-sized chalkboard and old textbooks from her mom’s elementary classroom. It was no surprise to anyone when she sought and gained her Interdisciplinary Studies (K-8) degree from Middle Tennessee State University in 2001. That fall, she began her teaching career in a self-contained 6th grade classroom. Since then, she has taught all core subject areas in grades 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 in Rutherford County Schools. As a dedicated public school teacher, she spent countless hours planning lessons, creating materials, researching for best practices, collaborating with co-workers, and combing through student data. Her students consistently showed academic growth on state testing. She has spent the last 2 years teaching students from China online and in-person at a homeschool tutorial. She is excited to join the team of outstanding educators at Fusion Online Academy.
