The resource includes everything you need to be successful while covering Martin Luther King, Jr.'s paper "The Purpose of Education."
Student Experience: Students will love this "rockin" lesson for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. This lesson takes King's "The Purpose of Education" and pairs it with a song from popular culture, Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall." Students closely read and analyze both texts and make connections across texts and genres. Then they will write their own poem in response to the anchor texts' themes and ideas. The relevant topic to teens allows them to share their thoughts and opinions and really gets them thinking and discussing the purpose of education
