I received a copy of this book today from my Teacher's of American History class. I love the way it teaches about the brave people in the south who stood up against racial segregation.
The book is called, Freedom on the Menu.
Luckily for everyone, this book has been made into a Reader's Theater script that is available for a free download.
Also, PLEASE check out the Teaching Tolerance website for some great resources for teaching civil rights. They offer FREE teaching kits for educators, which are incredible! This kit includes classroom sets of books, CDs and music, videos, and lots more.
Here is the form to order your free kit.
