This is a close reading activity for the "Let freedom ring" paragraph in Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. Students will analyze this paragraph in detail. This product includes a packet (2 pages) with the assignment and a corresponding handout (map of the U. S.) which will be needed to complete the assignment.
The packet contains a 2 page assignment analyzing a single paragraph of Dr. King's speech. It is designed to be completed individually by each student. The assignment contains 4 separate tasks and is scaffolded with easier tasks to be completed prior to completing the culminating task of writing a paragraph analysis of this specific excerpt from Dr. King's speech. For the 2nd task, students are asked to map out the states listed in the paragraph. I have included a printable map of the U. S. for students to reference when completing this part of the assignment.
