Middle school teachers: Seeking your feedback about an online learning resource

Hey everyone - An old college friend of mine helped develop a civil rights online learning resource for middle school students. The work has been done in partnership with the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, TN. He writes "The purpose of the course is to demonstrate the bus conditions in Montgomery, Alabama prior to the bus boycott and to provide more of a first hand understanding of legalized segregation. I am writing to solicit feedback on the course prior to the launch in February. It would be especially helpful if you are an educator, have a middle school aged child in your sphere who could test it, or have a passion about civil rights education." This link provides some more context around the online learning and access to the near-final version of the learning module itself. http://beforetheboycott.com You can send your feedback to me at community@edutopia.org, or post here. :) Thanks! betty

Thanks, Betty, for turning us on to this. I wonder how long the unit takes? It looks great for 8th grade history or ELA teachers. Anyone willing to take this on and give some feedback? Being a part of a pilot group can be great.
Consider being one of the first onboard.
