My assignment is to complete 2 mini lessons for elementary language arts. This resource from the State Department of Education popped out at me and goes along with the lesson idea I retrieved from Reading Rockets. I will activate prior knowledge by asking the students what they know about Martin Luther King, Jr. followed by creating a post card from the past after going on a civil rights road trip. This post references a map from the 1950's and 60's indicating where travel would be dangerous for a Negro. Students will also learn how to connect to the book they are reading by using sticky notes while reading. The students will then be asked to use the sticky notes to guide their journaling. We are also required to bring 3 multicultural books to class on Tuesday evening. This all seems to go together well.
