Dr. King's Dream. [Lesson Plan].
National Endowment for the Humanities (NFAH), Washington, DC.
This lesson plan teaches students about the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr. Students listen to a brief biography, view photographs of the March on Washington, hear a portion of King's "I Have a Dream" speech, and discuss what King's words mean to them. Finally, they will create picture books about their own dreams of freedom for Americans today. After its 4 lessons, students will have: (1) learned about the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr.; (2) reflected on a section of his "I Have a Dream" speech; and (3) become aware of inequities that still exist in the United States. Intended for grades K-2, the plan notes subject areas covered (language arts, literature, United States history and social studies), time required to complete the lesson, skills used and taught in the lesson, and the standards developed by professional associations or governments that are related to the lesson. Activities to extend the lesson and further resources conclude the lesson plan. (SR)
