        Ken Burns: Jackie Robinson | Lesson | Taking the Measure of a Man

        Students explore the highs and lows of Jackie Robinson’s first year as a Brooklyn Dodger and how his race played a role in the formation of different expectations people had of him. They will examine an instance of the harassment Robinson experienced on the field, analyze how he dealt with it, and explore ways aggression, prejudice, and bullying can be addressed.
