6th Grade: Complete and submit work on Google Classroom by the end of the day
Good morning, scholars! I'm really looking forward to our GOOGLE MEET session today.
I CAN: DESCRIBE THE IMPORTANCE OF THE SENECA FALLS CONVENTION (1848).
FOCUS QUESTION: : STATE YOUR OPINION: WHY DO YOU THINK THE UNITED STATES HAS NEVER HAD A FEMALE PRESIDENT?
Today in our GOOGLE MEET session we will discuss the Women's Movement of the mid 1800s. Leaders such as Susan B. Anthony, Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Stanton fought bravely for women to have important rights (like voting) and an increased role in society. They often faced stiff resistance from those that did now want women to have an advances.
One of the most important moments of the Women's Movement was the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848.
Women's "suffrage" (the ability to vote) was one of the main topics pushed forward at the convention. A "Declaration of Sentiments" was created at the convention and was modeled after the "Declaration of Independence."
I look forward to having rigorous discussions about the Women's Movement today in our GOOGLE MEET session today!
EXIT QUESTION: WHAT SIMILARITIES DID THE WOMEN'S MOVEMENT HAVE WITH THE ABOLITIONIST MOVEMENT?
I Can: Analyze the power of lyrics and poetry to understand the powerful forces of social change during the 1960s.
“It’s been a long time coming, but I know a change is gonna come.” ~ Sam Cooke, R&B, Gospel, and pop singer.
Those words made up the chorus to Sam Cooke’s passionate track; “A Change is Gonna Come.”
The participants of the civil rights movement recognized the power of song and performance, and utilized this form of cultural communication in their quest for equal justice under law.
The popular music of the early 1960s offers a unique and engaging entry point into the politics surrounding equal rights in mid-twentieth-century America.
The goal of this assignment is to better understand the counterculture revolution of the 1960s. You will analyze the power of lyrics and poetry to understand the powerful forces of social change during that influential era.
I: Listen and annotate the lyrics to one of the selected songs below
II: React and respond to the lyrics in the prompts provided on the "Song Analysis" worksheet (You may want to play the song a second time if it would be helpful.)
