It is meant to give students an idea of what Alaska’s Civil Rights movement was like and stations could easily be expanded to each fit a full day lesson.


    Guiding questions: How does Alaska’s civil rights movement and the discrimination that Alaska Natives faced, compare to the struggles of African Americans?


    Learning Objective:


    Students will understand that struggle that Alaska Natives faced and the discrimination that they were subjected to and be able to describe and explain how this compares to the African American struggle and the Civil Rights Movement that they know.

    • Title of Lesson Plan- Alaska Becomes a State
    •  Grade Range- K-2
    • Main learning goal- The purpose of this lesson is to acquaint students with the history of Alaska becoming a state and the related topics of the Alaska flag and song. In Alaska, state history is required coursework throughout grade school. Being a citizen of the state is also sufficiently compelling to include units on Alaska, even in years in which it is not required and on a regular basis. As Alaskans, having at least a minimal level of state knowledge is essential to facilitating the development of a well-informed citizenry.
