This is a full assignment on guiding students to read and analyze Martin Luther King's "Letter from a Birmingham Jail." Then students analyze the perspective of, motivations behind, and challenges faced by civil rights participants by writing their own "letter from jail."
His original letter is very long, and I have condensed it to less than two pages. Then follows vocabulary and comprehension questions.
The assignment is a creative writing piece that is constructed in an organized letter. Students must write a letter from jail as a Civil Rights Movement protestor, using evidence to support their law breaking actions. The assignment has structured steps for brainstorming and clear writing expectations.
The document includes:
-excerpt of King's letter
-vocabulary and reading questions
-writing assignment prompt and brainstorming
-low example letter
