Recently I wrote an article “9 Things You May Not Know About MLK, But Probably Should” that I shared on my blog.
I got several messages from teachers asking if they could take my article, copy it, and use it in their classrooms during Black History Month.
I was completely cool with this idea, but I thought that other teachers might also benefit from having the blog post in a more printer friendly resource.
Happily, I put the information about Dr. King in a document and added some cute clipart to make it more student friendly.
Now, there aren’t any questions or additional printables included, but here is a list of ideas that you can incorporate with the MLK printable:
- Students make a list of their own comprehension questions and then trade with a partner
- Reflect and write about the text in their journal
- Partner read
- Use with small instruction groups
- Locate answers and practice highlighting text evidence
- Compare and contrast Dr. King’s life with their own
- Nonfiction unit study
- Black History Unit
- Write 9 facts about themselves that others may now know
- Practice Close Reading strategy
This free resource includes a color, as well as a black and white version to save on your printer ink.
