TheBookHippie @Reggie Lots of people looking for a reason so they don‘t have to look truth in the face. People are conditioned to believe Black people have it coming facts are if this were a white person we wouldn‘t be having this conversation and that‘s the truth people won‘t see and don‘t want to believe. Makes me so angry. I do not care what anyone has done, police are allowed to kill ? We know that they are. Others need to see this is true. Always has been. 2y

This nonfiction picture book describes the events that happened back on August 23, 1963, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the march on Washington and the speech that shook our nation forever. Kadir Nelson is the illustrator who takes students on a journey once reading this book.

“I Have a Dream” By Kadir Nelson is an extraordinary NF B book! This book has won two Caldecott awards and the Coretta Scott King Award! Amazing! This book is a fantastic DR or RA book on what MLK believed in. It is a great book to teach young students about Civil rights and can be used in a History Lesson as well. At the end of the book, it has the entire “I Have a Dream” speech by MLK! #ucflae3413su20

Viviannef UDL 1.1 Offer ways of customizing the display of information and ESOL 16 Integrate speaking, listening, reading, and writing activities. Students will be able to listen during the RA about MLK and his journey fighting for civil rights. The link below also provides opportunities for students to write their own “I have a dream” speech just liked MLK in his historical speech. 2y
Viviannef http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/living-dream-acts... – The website provides an amazing lesson plan for grades K-2, student interactives, printouts, and multiple websites to investigate relating to the book! 2y
DrSpalding Excellent use of a recommended high-quality resource. Once again, he has been in the news for his work alongside John Lewis. You have created a diverse set of books that could easily paint a picture of the civil rights movement in our country. 2y

This amazingly influential PB illustrated by Kadir Nelson has won the CORETTA SCOTT KING award. It is the entire speech from MLK himself but in this form allows for students and even kids to have a better understanding. It is perfect for a DR & even a history lesson. This website provides a lesson plan for teachers to allow...

Rachelleleduc ...student to develop their own “i have a dream” speech. UDL 1.1 deals with customizing & having student write their own speech is utilizing just that. ESOL 16 integrates speaking and writing activities. #ucflae3414sp20 3y
Rachelleleduc Genre: non fiction 3y
DrSpalding While the genre is non-fiction, you need to go one step further because it is factual information about a historical figure. What genre is it? This is a quality picture book that has won numerous awards and should be a part of your classroom library and of course social studies instruction. 3y

I loved this book, it is Martin Luther King Jr's “I Have A Dream“ speech. He is a very important person in history and his speech is also an important part of history as well during the Civil Rights movement. He fought for equality and human rights for African Americans, the economically disadvantages and all victims of injustice through peaceful protest.

UDL strategy 1.3 offer alternatives for visual information and ESOL 8 Use direct instruction align with the S by providing varying support. #LAE3414sp19

No reading time today because I spent my day in Washington DC being a counter protester - standing up for love and equality and against the alt-right and racism. Everything was peaceful where I was and we outnumbered them by thousands. Education and reading can end ignorance.

This beautiful NF illustrates one of the most well known portions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, originally published in 1963. It has won the Coretta Scott King award for it's illustrations of the African American experience. This book and its illustrations would make a good RA for students when learning about the life of Martin Luther King Jr. #ucflae3414f17

cheyennewilliams http://www.theclassroombookshelf.com/2012/09/the-spoken-word-in-picture-books/ This link will take you to a list of lesson plans for teaching students about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I really liked the Martin's Big Words lesson. It has students create illustrated "flash cards" for new/challenging vocabulary words first, and then after the reading, has them use two of the words in a paragraph or other writing assignment. 5y
cheyennewilliams UDL strategy 2.1: clarify vocabulary and symbols. Introduce students to any new/challenging vocabulary and their definitions before the RA. Have them create flash cards with the definition on one side and the word and an illustration of it on the other. 5y
cheyennewilliams EL strategy 40: have students prepare individual card files of subject area specific vocabulary. Having students create vocabulary cards with pictures on them will help to introduce them to challenging vocabulary that they will encounter during the reading. It will also help them to make connections by providing them with a visual representation of the words. 5y

I Have a Dream by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Is a great nonfiction read aloud and author study book for students. I think it is important to have this book in your library because it is history of freedom and equality for all.

"I Have a Dream" speech brings his

It is important for young readers to understand what he did for our nation. The UDL 3.1 activate or supply background knowledge along with EL 4 link lesson topic to students' prior knowledge.

I bought this book for my son a few years back and I was really grateful that it came with the recordings of his speech. He has yet to hear the whole thing but one day soon, he will and we'll discuss what his words meant then and now.

We have to remember that he was more than this one speech. That he was a complex man with a message who was taken before his time.
