With the Brown v. Board of Education 50th anniversary just around the
corner, May 17th, I thought everyone might be interested to know about the
Multnomah County Library Homework Center's newly created Civil Rights &
Brown v. Board of Education Resource Guide.
This Homework Center guide helps K-12 students and educators find library
booklists and quality Web resources about the civil rights movement, from
the mid-1800s through the 20th century. Educators will find an incredible
wealth of links to online civil rights lesson plans.
Doni Stewart, Portland Public Schools former middle school media specialist
and current PPS middle school library project coordinator, says, "The list
of resources provided by Multnomah County Library are phenomenal. I am
confident that the sources and information put together will create success
for each student and teacher."
Dr. Darrell Millner, current professor and former chair of Black Studies at
Portland State University, remarked about the guide, "I am very impressed
and think [the library] ha[s] done a great job. It should be of great use to
anyone interested in the topic."
You can access this guide directly from the link above, from the index page
of the Homework Center <http://www.multcolib.org/homework/>

Homework Center <http://www.multcolib.org/homework/amhsthc.html>
