What are the student benefits?
Instead of merely learning basic facts about Dr. Martin Luther King this lesson plan does more. The combined videos and worksheets allow learners to understand Dr. Kings legacy of peaceful protest by (1) analyzing the world around them (2) creating their own solutions and (3) supporting their organized thoughts and conclusions.
• The video facilitator asks open ended questions
• The video leaves time for learners to think, analyze, and write responses on their
video keyed worksheets
• The video facilitator encourages learners to use their own experiences in
• The video and keyed worksheets help students to justify and support their ides
What Learning Theory is this Set based?
This lesson plan uses the Constructivism 5 E model; (1) engage, (2) explore, (3) explain, (4) extend and (5) evaluate. Because this learning theory allows students to share their own unique experience, it perfectly compliments Dr. King’s legacy of unifying people from diverse backgrounds.
We think it’s a great way for students to make meaningful connections between their personal lives and the enduring legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King’s life such as peace, appreciation for diversity and national unity.
