Product Description
Need a NO PREP lesson for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day or for nonfiction essay analysis? How about a "rockin" lesson that teens will love?

In the upper grades and in ELA, it seems to be increasingly difficulty to find MLK materials that haven’t already been done. This lesson takes an unfamiliar text (King's "The Purpose of Education") and pairs it with a song from popular culture (Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall") and allows students to closely read both and make connections across texts and genres. The relevant topic to teens allows them to share their thoughts and opinions and really gets them thinking and discussing.

Included:
- Detail teacher's guide and lesson plan
- Anticipation Set Activity
- NO PREP versions of the text
- Guided questions and answers
- Paired song/poem with analysis
- Creative poetry writing culminating task
