Class Details

Rosa Parks.  Martin Luther King Jr.  These are a couple of key people who made a major difference during the Civil Rights Movement.  We have so much to learn from their heroic deeds!  

In this lesson, students will learn about the Montgomery Bus Boycotts.  We will begin by learning about Jim Crow laws.  A primary source will be viewed and discussed, as we learn about some actual Jim Crow Laws from Alabama.  From there, students will learn how Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. lead the way in a highly successful boycott of the public busing system in Montgomery.  We will look into the sad consequences of their brave actions and have conversations about what it would be like if we were in their shoes.  From there, we will examine the changes that were made, out of these heroic actions.  

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.
