Lesson 6: The Daily Experience of the Laurel Grove School, 1925


Students will build on their understanding of the founding of the Laurel Grove School from previous lessons and use both primary and secondary sources to investigate the daily experience of students at the Laurel Grove School in 1925.  High school students will also consider the debate between Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois over industrial and academic education for African American students, both nationally and as it affected the Laurel Grove School.
