Martin Luther King Jr. Quote Analysis Minilesson

 

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!!

I love when I can take a teachable moment and combine it with my child's curriculum. And today, I can do just that. 

Honestly, I think teaching our children Dr. King's message is just as important today as it was 60 years ago. As I was reading his words and researching quotes, I was struck by just how relevant his words are during these difficult times for our country.

His words give hope. And encouragement. And understanding.

Since text analysis and interpretation is a critical part of most language arts curricula, I decided to create this minilesson for my oldest son who is in 9th grade. We'll be discussing what a quote analysis consists of, and then he'll be using the worksheets to analyze quotes from Dr. King. 

If you'd like to use them with your older children, I have listed this packet in my TpT shop and it will be on sale for $1 through Tuesday only. 


All the worksheets are available in English and Spanish. And a grading rubric is included for teachers who wish to use it with their classes.

Enjoy!



Don't forget that you can find a list and description of ALL of my Martin Luther King, Jr. printables here.
