Overview and Curriculum
Lesson 1 will begin by examining the developing atmosphere of political
change in Europe and America in the late 1960s, where a number of countries
experienced civil unrest through various campaigns for human and civil
rights. The remaining lessons in the module will look at how the Civil Rights
movement developed in Northern Ireland as a response to these events, its
impact, and the subsequent outbreak of the armed conflict.
Each lesson provides students with opportunities to learn through questioning and investigation based active learning methodologies and links to a series of archive images, audio and video. The digital tasks provided will enable students to form creative expressions of the learning that they have developed around the civil rights movement.
