    Putting the Movement Back Into Civil Rights Teaching
    A curriculum guide for K-12 classrooms
    The Network of Educators on the Americas (NECA) & the
    Poverty and Race Research Action Council (PRRAC) invite
    you to submit materials for "Putting the Movement Back
    Into Civil Rights Teaching," a K-12 curriculum guide, to be
    followed by a series of professional development institutes.
    Taught as a multifaceted people's struggle for social justice,
    the Civil Rights Movement can help students develop a critical
    analysis of racism and resistance enabling them understand
    their role in implementing social change. The central
    themes will include:
    * The multiple strategies used during the Civil Rights Movement
    * The Movement prior to the 1950's and its continuation today
    * The Movement's impact on other national and international
        social and liberation movements
    * The creation and role of culture in the Movement
    The focus areas will be citizenship, education and labor.
    We seek interactive, interdisciplinary lessons, readings,
    graphics, and/or interviews. We hope that you will join
