Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman.
In the Southern United States, until the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, "Jim Crow Laws" prohibited Blacks from using washrooms, water fountains, certain laundromats and other facilities. Blacks could not eat at most restaurants and had to sit at the back of busses, the front being reserved for whites. These restrictions were constant and humiliating reminders to blacks of their second class status. Repealing the Jim Crow Laws and changing the customs of segregation were crucial parts of the Civil Rights Movement.
