Are you looking for just the right lesson that isn't too elementary and gives a great man the honor he deserves?
Start students off brainstorming in a structured circle map, and discussing what they already know about Dr. King. Then give them a well researched essay for them to annotate about the life of Dr. King.
From there you have a choice of different processing strategies...
*Think-Discuss-Defend gives your students choice and opportunity to process, discuss and defend their thoughts on what makes a great man and a powerful movement.
*Key vocabulary and strategies for dealing with new words from the reading.
*Annotation handout on how students can dissect a text.
*Directions for a bio poem for students to explain what they learned about the man.
