Are you studying the great leaders of the world? Is it Black History Month? Are you honoring Martin Luther King, Jr.? Do you have students who just can't get along? This assignment is great for all of those situations. This ELA activity includes two articles about great non-violent Leaders MLK and Gandi as well as a 5-paragraph writing activity that asks students to summarize what they learned about each leader, to compare each leader, and to reflect on how the leaders can help them problem solve in their everyday lives. It also incorporates the use of research-based Thinking Maps. THINK COMMON CORE! THINK RESEARCH! This assignment can be done over a long term period and you can certainly supplement with other resources. Great for Grades 4, 5, and 6!!
