Lesson Plan

This mini-lesson covers the basics of the Supreme Court’s decision that required public schools to provide language supports to English and multilingual learners (ELs/MLs). Students learn how Lau’s arguments relate to the landmark case, Brown v. Board of Education (1954), and how the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects public school students from discrimination.
