The Colored Car – Educator Resources

These language arts and social studies activities were crafted by a twenty-five year veteran of the Detroit Public Schools, elementary school teacher Jean Ford Fuqua, BS, MEd, who also distinguished herself by serving as the first Director of Teacher Interns for the Wayne State University College of Education. These lessons provide educators with the means to create language arts and social studies activities in the middle grade classroom via an examination of the portrayal of family and community life in the novel The Colored Car.
