Instructional unit on the life of Ida B. Wells

Hello colleagues, Teachers working with advanced English learners, might like to check out the article about Ida B. Wells in the CommonLit collection. I taught a unit on Ida B. Wells recently, and I would be happy to share the materials I developed to accompany this article, a short video about Wells' life, and a brief video of Bryan Stevenson, founder of the Equal Justice Initative, talking about the legacy of lynching. Members might be familiar with the Equal Justice Initiative and the recently opened Legacy Museum and National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama.

If you'd like me to send the materials I developed for the unit on Ida B. Wells, please contact me at 

Please let us know about ways you have addressed racism in your classroom.

Take care, Susan Finn Miller
