What is your dream for a better world? After reading a short article about Dr Martin Luther King, kids identify something they would like to see changed, the steps that could be followed to make the dream a reality, and the effects these changes would have on the world.
- Using the cover of the packet as a model, post pictures of class members along with their dream paragraph
- Consider including a brainstorming session to provide kids with possible topics
- The five-page packet includes graphic organizers to help writers organize their thoughts, passages from King's "I Have a Dream" speech, and information abut some of the changes that have occurred since 1968
- Little scaffolding is provided for the assignment
