They will share their thoughts and opinions of the views expressed by the people in the videos. 3. The class will be broken into three groups. The groups will be identified as “Better”, “Worse”, and “Same”. As a group, they will be required to list on chart paper how race relations have changed in America according to their groups title. (i.e. The “Worse” group must list ways that race relations have gotten worse since the 1960s). 4. Each group will be given 5 minutes to fill out their chart. After 5 minutes, they will be asked to “rotate” with the different groups. They will do this two more times to ensure they get to fill out all three charts. If they disagree with anything seen on a chart, they may comment on it. 5. Groups will return to their charts. From there, they will report out what people had put down. The teacher will ask probing questions based off the responses in order to encourage discussion.
