Essential Question- How do the things that Martin Luther King Jr. said in the 1960’s, during the Civil Rights Movement, relate to our lives today?
Lesson Summary- Students will review what they already know about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. based on previous classroom activities and discussions. The instructor will read the book “Martin’s Big Words”, asking students to think about how the things Dr. King said relate to their own lives. Students will then choose from a sampling of preselected quotes by Dr. King and draw a picture showing what that quote means to them. The lesson will conclude with reviewing the song “We Shall Overcome” and thinking about the lyrics in light of what we have learned.
