This activity is student centered as the students think like detectives -trying to figure out which people are the impostures, and which is the "real" Dr. King.
Three students will be chosen to pretend they are Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. They will appear next to each other in the front of the room facing the class. During the activity, the three will be asked questions by other students in class. The questions will be about Dr. Martin Luther King’s life. The students will have prepared answers they will read from a script.
Ten other students will ask questions during the game (see student scripts). They will be assigned a number from 1 to 10. This is the number of the question they will ask when the game begins.
After every question, the three Dr. Martin Luther King’s will each give an answer. “Number 1” will always answer first, “Number 2” second, and “Number 3” third. Only one of the three is really Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The real one will always tell the truth when answering questions. After all 10 questions have been asked, class members will vote for the person they think is they real Martin Luther King.
Also, all students will complete a "score sheet" to keep notes as the questions are being asked.
WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE:
10 Scripted questions students will ask each of the "Dr. Kings".
10 Scripted answers for each of the Dr. Kings.
3 Three name plates for the students playing Dr. King.
