Description

Students can get creative and show their knowledge of Martin Luther King Jr's contributions with this digital writing activity that comes in Google Slides™ and PowerPoint.

Directions: Students pretend that the cell phone belongs to MLK (and that he is still alive) as they type a texting conversation between MLK and any person/character of their choice. They will have to plan out their conversation carefully in order to fit everything in the provided bubbles. Two different templates are provided: 5 texting bubbles vs. 6 texting bubbles. I have already typed the text in the first bubble to serve as the writing prompt but this can be deleted or edited to fit your needs. An example of a completed texting conversation is included.

Aside from incorporating this activity into a unit on Famous Americans/historical figures or when studying civil rights, other academic concepts can be covered! Some ideas include:

  • Creative writing
  • Vocabulary in context
  • Figurative language
  • Writing with voice
  • Point of view
  • Grammar
  • Foreign Language Practice

You can assign this file individually for students to complete. Or you could duplicate the slides to make a collaborative presentation and assign each student their own slide to work on. They will have a blast reading through all of the conversations their classmates created!

Student directions appear in the speaker notes of each slide.

This resources will work on Chromebooks, laptops/computers and iPads that have the Google Slides app installed.

This product comes in a zipped file that contains the PowerPoint and Google Slides link in a PDF file. To access the Google Slides you will first want to make sure you are signed into your Google account. Click on the link and you will be prompted to "Make a Copy". Rename the file whatever you would like. The presentation will be sent directly to your Drive! Disperse to your students via Google Classroom™, Google Drive™ Shared folder, your Learning Platform, etc..
