    Classroom Library Suggestions- These titles are suggested for teachers using the unit of study 3.3 Martin Luther King Jr. Biography. These books will help students build important background knowledge about the Civil Rights Movement. This unit of study is available at http://shop.readsidebyside.com/Martin-Luther-King-Unit-33.htm Freedom on the Menu: The Greensboro Sit-Ins by Carole Boston Weatherford

  • Nicole Gillispie

    Freedom on the Menu tells the story of the Greensboro Sit Ins. This book is another eye-opener for kids learning about American history and the civil rights movement. This book differs from some of the other civil rights books in that it focuses less on individual players (i.e heroes of the movement) and more on the everyday injustices that ordinary people encountered. In that way, it is very powerful -- and shocking -- to modern young readers. This book will definitely spark discussion.
