CELEBRATING THE LIFE AND LEGACY
DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is an important person in American History whose name is very familiar to most students, but whose life and legacy are too often a confusing mass of legends and myths. Few students know or understand what Dr. King did and how his actions impacted the United States and people around the world.
Successful Classroom Management Initiative® provides student activities and community initiatives to honor Dr. King, preserve his legacy and educate today’s students about his life, his work and the National Holiday named in his memory.
The Student Activities CD, “Celebrating the National MLK Holiday”, has been created for teachers of students in grades 7-12. It was designed to engage students in a variety of class activities and projects to celebrate and honor the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and preserve his legacy.
Students will discover the rich tapestry of the life and work of Dr. King as they develop and share their talents. This innovative project includes 12 “ready-made” activities. Some are individual, others are collaborative and still others are cross-curricular. The activities require varying amounts of time. You may want to use one set of activities one year and a different set the following year.
The activities of this disk are designed to make Dr. King a more personal and authentic figure of history, and help your students realize that his work continues to impact their lives. Our hope is that this generation of young people will have an historically accurate and realistic picture of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the man and the person of history.
