We are a group of 7th graders from Colorado who want to practice our writing and communication skills. We are excited to expand the walls of our classroom and collaborate with other classes! Please leave us comments and your blog URL, so we can respond back to you!
Last Friday we watched The Ernest Green Story, which was the story of The Little Rock Nine. We all talked quite a bit about what happened. What is your reaction to the movie? What would you have done? Would you have had the courage to continue on or to not fight back? What did you think? Please support why. Also, how have things changed, or have they? Are there other instances of discrimination going on in the world today? Watch the following videos which show two of the actual students talking about their experience. ***If you were absent on Friday and missed the movie, watch the following videos and check some of the links to read about what happened, so that you can post a response.
This is a video with Minnie Jean Brown talking about her experience.
