Product Description
This PowerPoint, which pairs with Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "What Is Your Life's Blueprint?" provides students with the background information necessary to understand the allusions that are key to unlocking the speech's message. It briefly exposes students to Emerson's philosophy, Michelangelo's art, Shakespeare's writing, Beethoven's symphonies, and Leontyne Price's singing. It includes links to YouTube videos, allowing students to listen to selections of Beethoven's music, such as "Fur Elise" and "Moonlight Sonata," in addition to a clip of Price singing, "Summertime" from the opera Porgy and Bess. The final slide asks students to consider what message they are meant to take away from the speech. This is always a favorite lesson.
