Product Description
What better way to really understand Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision than for students to “walk in his shoes” and create their own protest demonstration on an issue they feel passionate about.

After studying Martin Luther King, Jr.’s views about nonviolent protest in his “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” students will plan their own nonviolent protest and create a pseudo-documentary that records their efforts Students will gain a greater appreciation of the struggles of King and his supporters to fight against injustice to achieve King’s final hope in his letter--that “in some not too distant tomorrow the radiant stars of love and brotherhood will shine over our great nation with all their scintillating beauty.”

This lesson includes an activity handout and a grading rubric.

Suitable for English and history teachers, this activity covers Common Core State Standards for writing and listening and speaking.

It is one component of our 71-page unit on King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail.”
