    By 1895, therefore, the Negro's civil rights — that is, his share in all public privileges of whatever sort — had been made fully equal, in Boston and Massachusetts, to those of other elements of the community. So far as it was possible for the law to accomplish, all obstacles to the Negro's largest opportunity were removed, and he was placed abreast of his white fellow-citizens.

    and the Boston Globe article about the event. Using small blue exam books, have the students write their observations in a journal format, as if they were an event observer. Encourage pictures and words to describe event.
    What I have also done in place of the journal entry is to have them pretend they were a news reporter for the Boston Globe. I gave them clipboards to jot down notes as I present the Harvard Bridge jump photos and talk about it as a real event. They then take that information and use it to write a news story using very descriptive language-- to make the reader feel they are there.

    Questions are at the heart of inquiry learning. While questions are also a part of the traditional classroom, the sources, purposes, and the questioning itself are quite different. The traditional classroom is focused on mastery of content; the inquiry approach is more focused on using and learning content as a means to develop information-processing and problem-solving skills. This inquiry approach is more student-centered, with the teacher acting as a facilitator. Students are more involved in the construction of knowledge through active involvement. They make observations, collect, analyze, and synthesize information, and draw conclusions about a question or problem. Inquiry often does not seek a “right answer” because often there is not one. Teachers focus more on "how we come to know" by presenting evidence and information and encouraging student questioning which leads them to construct their understanding of the stated problem.
    This means that the nature of the questions asked is vitally important. Questions must be essential!

    "Historical thinking matters. Not only does it matter, it needs to be learned."
    "Boring names, facts, dates - this is history for a lot of people. But historians think about history differently. They see themselves as detectives, often unsure about what happened, what it means, and rarely able to agree amongst themselves. This process of trying to figure out things you don't already know is as different from mindless memorization as you can get."
