Explore the Impact of This Great Civil Rights Leader

We offer this powerful reading and lesson plan for Martin Luther King Jr. Day or Black History Month

Black history is American history. If you would like to explore the impact of Dr. Martin Luther King on American history, please consider using our lesson plan built around the text of David Dinkins’s “Martin Luther King, Jr.” This selection is in the anthology To Be a Hero, part of the Literature & Thought series, produced in partnership with Perfection Learning.

The Great Books Foundation offers a wide range of materials in English/language arts, social studies, science, and more. Visit our store to find grade-appropriate texts, both fiction and nonfiction, for your students.

We also offer outstanding professional development in the Shared Inquiry method, which helps teachers hone their inquiry-teaching skills and enable their students to become question-driven, critical thinkers.

Please fill out this form to download the lesson plan.
