Barack Obama Lesson Plan

The election of Barack Obama has been described as a “historic”event being that he was the first African American president of this country. Breaking this racial barrier was a major step towards equality for our generation and achieving equality is something we still continue to strive for. This lesson centers around the relationship of Barack Obama’s election to the Civil Right’s movement, and why his election could be considered “historic”. This is important to include in a 21st century high school curriculum because it takes a pivotal moment from this century and connects it the a pivotal moment from our history, which allows students to learn the history using the present.
