Archival Document Sets

High School

This set of documents and exercises is designed for 10-12 grade students. These sets can be used to fulfill Common Core Standards CCSS.ELA-Literacy RH.11-12(1-10) and RH.9.10(1-10).

A History or Social Studies course should plan to spend 2-3 class sessions working through this unit, though teachers may find it appropriate to mix and match the material provided depending on existing curriculum and readings.

Students will develop critical thinking skills, compare various perspectives, and practice interrogating primary sources related to the social and political life of 1960s through the lens of Detroit.
