The Foot Soldier Curriculum is inspired by the scholarship and research of the Foot Soldier Project for Civil Rights Studies at the University of Georgia. While the lessons in the Foot Soldier Curriculum are not based on Georgia’s QCC standards, they adhere closely to them. The purpose of the Foot Soldier Curriculum lessons is to provide teachers in any school system with a framework for teaching issues and events of the Civil Rights Movement.

Letters and numbers in parenthesis indicate suggested course and grade level, for example: (SS2H1) = SS-Social Studies, 2-Grade Two, H-History, 1-Skill Number. Georgia teachers can go to for current standards.

NOTE: It is important to review the current standards applicable to your state and grade level, and adapt the lessons accordingly.
