I Have a Dream

On this day in 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. gave his famed "I have a dream" speech.  What better way to start the school year by watching and reflecting on the powerful words and ideas from the speech?  What dreams do you and your students have for this year?  For the future?

Did you know that YOUR SMARTboard Notebook software includes the speech for viewing in the classroom?  Just search the gallery for "dream" and you will see it there in three parts.

Other great resources are the books My Brother Martin and Martin's Big Words.  These can be used at almost any grade level to get the message and ideas of this great man across.

Don't forget, both BrainPOP and BrainPOP Jr. have videos related to Martin Luther King Jr. All Six Nations schools have a subscription to BrainPOP, so be sure to use it this year!  Why not start today with the Martin Luther King Jr. video and resources?
