In teaching Miller Avenue kindergartners about African American history and Martin Luther King Jr., teacher Joan Jacobs recently engaged her students in a re-enactment exercise related to Rosa Parks’ refusal to give up her seat on a Montgomery bus in 1955.  During the lesson, students sat in a makeshift bus and took turns pretending to be Rosa Parks as Ms. Jacobs narrated the historical event.
