Whether or not you can make it to our local screenings this week, we wanted to show you some of the great teacher resources available for Freedom Riders, an incredible film from American Experience set to debut this May.
American Experience has partnered with Facing History and Ourselves to develop a full study guide as a companion to Freedom Riders. You can download this resource here to use in your classroom along with the film.
The film producers are also working with Teachers’ Domain to develop digital resources for middle and high school students and educators that will enhance the use of Freedom Riders in the classroom. Check back soon for more details.
Additional resources are available through the National Endowment for the Humanities’ website EDSITEment.
Finally, we wanted to share the teaser trailer with you; check it out below. Freedom Riders premieres May 16, 2011 on WGBY.
