Martin Luther King, Jr. MLK Civil Rights Lesson Tolerance Discrimination PBIS
This lesson tells the story of the contributions that the great Martin Luther King, Jr. made to the history and well-being of our nation. This story is told by five videos of some of his speeches as well as news reports of his assassination. Also, a brief history of the Civil Rights Movement gives historical background of the work that Dr. King did. I also included a very moving announcement of his death by Robert Kennedy which I had never seen, but I found it to be quite effective in explaining the meaning of Dr. King’s work. Kid President also gives his two-cents-worth in regard to this topic. (I love Kid President).
It includes 14 slides and links to 5 videos ranging in length from 2 min and 13 min. This is a rich variety of concepts that help to explain the vast contribution that this historical American gave to our country.
I would schedule at least 30 minutes for this lesson, and it could easily take longer if you encourage discussion. This lesson is easily customizable for both upper primary, intermediate, and middle school levels.
The PowerPoint is easily personalized and includes both animations and transitions to hold your students' interest. Make your lesson come alive for your students and help them to connect to the concept in a fun way that will help them to remember the important lessons you need for them to remember.
