This lesson serves as an introduction to a U.S. history unit. The CCSS-featured informational text, The Story of Ruby Bridges, describes the experiences of six-year-old Ruby, the first black student to be integrated into an all-white school.

This account naturally segues into further study of the Civil Rights Movement; freedom leaders such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, and Eleanor Roosevelt; suffrage and citizenship for all people; and the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the fifteenth and nineteenth amendments. Included are elements of complex nonfiction text, vocabulary, images, close reading, text-dependent questions, letter writing, companion texts, research, and cross-curricular activities.
