This is a 2 part assignment. The first part students would go to a website and answer questions about locations of key Civil Rights events. The second part they read Martin Luther King Jr's speech and answer questions then read his letter from jail and answer questions. This is a great way to expose students to primary documents. Both King's speech and letter are provided.
Works great from Middle and High School. This took my 7th rade students over an hour and my high school students about 45 minutes.
