The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.
Books You Need to Find Today
To begin a study of MLK and the Civil Rights Movement, I’d recommend starting with Martin’s Big Words and I Have a Dream. Tying these to a video clip of his speech/speeches will give your students a full image of the time.
Activity Ideas You Can Use This Week
There are many activity options for teaching about Martin Luther King Jr. on Pinterest as well as on Teachers Pay Teachers. Last year, I started this Pinterest board.
I hope you and yours enjoyed the much deserved winter break. Feel free to link up activities you’ve enjoyed or wish to share.
