We recommend that students know the story of Rosa Parks in advance of doing this lesson which will really place them in her shoes.
This is a powerful lesson aimed at Upper primary and Secondary students and it is excellent for further development in terms of discussion and reflection.
*This lesson can be done in a classroom setting with a bit of organisation of chairs but you can improvise around this lesson plan structure quite easily to adapt it.
