Southern flood blues: The Great Flood of 1927
Students will begin the lesson by analyzing primary and secondary information and placing that information into a graphic organizer. Students will then read articles regarding the treatment of African-Americans during the flood and discuss how this treatment led to the founding of the Delta Blues movement across the country. Students will take this information and apply it to their own place and time. Students will use information for a predetermined task.
