I created questions for the Jackie Robinson Video and have paired it with the Ruby Bridges text. The last question has the students compare and contrast the struggles of Bridges to that of Robinson's.The students have to use video and text evidence in their answer.

May I get a copy of the questions you made for the video? Thank you!
