Storyboard Text

  • He Wanted to Help His Former Students
  • I am hungry.... again 
  • I wish I could help.
  • He Wanted To Do The Right Thing 
  • Green=Approve Red=Disprove 
  • I think I am doing the right thing.
  • He Rethought His Choices And His Previous Actions And Changed His Mind
  • Should I sign? It could help other people. But I do not really like the bill.
  • In The American Promise it says that LBJ's students were poor and often came to class without breakfast. You could conclude that he felt bad for his students. Also from The American Promise it says that LBJ's students knew that they were in poverty and in their youth the pain of prejudice. LBJ probably wanted to help his students have a better chance of life. 
  • He wanted to be popular by helping his former students
  • I could be more popular if I helped my former students.
  • LBJ believed that he was handling the civil rights act good for the people. From The Gallup Poll: Public Opinion the pie chart showed 39% of the public opinion voted about right. On a map (that was crated from various sources) it shows that JFK and LBJ had 21 and a half states on their  side. This shows that if there are a lot of people voting for them then tat probably means that the people like what their doing.  
  • He worked on the civil rights problem until the people thought he was handling the problem just right  
  • In the Chicago Tribute it says that he knew that the Civil Rights Bill could help people.This shows that he dint completely dislike the Civil Rights Bill. Also from the Chicago Tribute it says that he helped push through a provision saying that anyone accused of violating the act they would get a jury trial. That made it likely that any defendant in the South would be tried by an all white jury and acquitted. (Let go). Without the provision he would his popularity in the Southern States.
  • He signed it so the people would vote for him
  • Because he noticed that his former students were in poverty and often came to school without food, he thought that if he signed it to help his former students have a better chance at life he would get more votes.
  • LBJ thought that he would be popular with the people if he handled the civil rights problem just right. If he was working every day to find a solution to the civil rights problem, then that shows that he cares about the public's opinion and wants to get the public's votes.
  • When he was thinking about signing the civil rights bill he thought that the people would vote for him. He might have been thinking that you have to give the people what they want.
