Black History Month

February is Black History month and at CA we spend time in the classroom studying prominent African American figures in our past and present. On each of the individual school boards you will find what your student is studying in regards to this topic this month!

8th grade English completed a multi-faceted research and presentation project concerning the decade of the 1930’s, the legal plight of African Americans in the south, those who fought against the Jim Crow laws of the South, and the changes within our nation’s history and laws to ensure the rights of African Americans. The students have been inspired the achievements of some extraordinary African Americans during the Depression.

Students are reading To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.   This classic novel gives us the vehicle to discover and discuss about our cultural, moral, and civil growth as a nation.

From invitation, the 8th graders will be visiting the TN State Museum exhibit of the original Emancipation Proclamation document this week. The Emancipation Proclamation, which linked the preservation of American constitutional government to the end of slavery and has become one of our country’s most treasured pieces of history.
