Product Description
Chances are, your students have already read or heard about the "I Have a Dream" speech or "Letters From a Birmingham Jail." Instead of doing a repeat lesson plan, use this poetry activity to add new life to your coverage of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The activity is centered on Gwendolyn Brooks' poem, "Martin Luther King, Jr." A short poem that is quite accessible, there are lots of elements of figurative language to analyze and interpret.

This worksheet is ready-to-print and could serve as an emergency lesson plan for a substitute teacher.

A copy of the poem is included, along with a two-page answer key.
