Teacher Lesson Plans
for Sit Down to Take a Stand

Dear Teacher,

At the Dr Pepper Museum and Free Enterprise Institute, we teach economics, history, and other concepts through the story of Dr Pepper and the Soft Drink industry. For this unit, we have focused on the story of the Civil Rights Movement nationally and locally and how it impacted communities. We designed activities that will help students explore history, democracy, and civic participation. These concepts and activities connect to our new Sit Down to Take a Stand exhibit. We are committed to supporting you as you teach this complex area of history in your classroom.

We look forward to connecting your class with the story of the national, state, and local Civil Rights Movement and inspiring your students to take responsible civic action.

These lesson plans are designed to help you create lessons for your classroom that connect to the Sit Down to Take a Stand exhibit at the Dr Pepper Museum. Lessons are typically cross curricular and are tied to TEKS. We suggest that you take these lessons and accommodate them to meet your class’s needs.

Enjoy!

Your Dr Pepper Museum Staff
