Title: “I Have A Dream” Speech – Martin Luther King Jr. and Found Poetry Lesson #: 1 of 4

practice looking for vivid language. The found poem
assignment will also be introduced to students on this
day, and students will be using MLK’s speech to create a
poem. Through this assignment, students will practice
making mental images, as well as creatively organizing
words/phrases into a poem.

The students have previously viewed this same speech

the day before; however, viewing it a second time allows
students to catch any information one may have missed
the first time around and helps students focus on the
annotation piece-- but also acts as a safety net for
students that may have been absent yesterday.

I am going to teach this topic now because Monday 1/21

was MLK day. We are also currently in the Civil Rights
Movement unit. It’s important that students know about
this time period/events/individuals because some of
these conflicts still continue to reappear in today’s
society. Students are also answering the following
essential question at the end of the unit: How would the
Civil Rights Movement have been different without your
individual? (Although, students are taking a break from
these projects this week).

imagery in his not only his “I Have a Dream” speech, but in all of his speeches—and that’s
why he is so valued and referenced to. So today, we’re going to re-watch the speech with

more (meaning underlining specific lines of text that really resonate with you because
you will be using these later today; so make sure you underline something).

How do you intent to engage your students in

thinking during the Anticipatory Set? The strategy I intend to use is: Reflection/Relating to the Student

Why are you using it at this point in your lesson? I am using this strategy here because: I want to bridge the connection between
yesterday’s lesson and today’s. This will not only be a reminder for students, but also to
provide purpose in studying this speech to this day. By asking students to think of song
that resonates with them, this makes the question I ask more relatable, purposeful and

How do you intend to engage your students in
thinking during the PROCEDURE? The strategy I intend to use is: Sharing Out and Annotating

Why are you using it at this point in your lesson? I am using this strategy here because: This strategy allows students to orally share
thoughts and intriguing information after viewing a video and following along with text.
Students will be annotating, meaning writing minor notes/comments; however, this is an
opportunity to elaborate more on these findings. Students will not only be able to share
burning ideas, but also to listen to perspectives of one’s peers.

 To cue students to the fact that they have

arrived at an important point in the lesson or
the end of a lesson.
 To help organize student learning
To help form a coherent picture and to consolidate.
How do you intend to engage your students in
thinking during CLOSURE? The strategy I intend to use is: to refer back to the learning target/thinking strategies, as
well as have students complete a learning target reflection.
Why are you using it at this point in your lesson?
I am using this strategy here because: it’s important for students to understand the
importance of going over the learning target, success criteria, and thinking strategies.
When making such connections, students will piece together parts to a whole and begin
to independently guide one’s own learning.
