Student Writer Instructions:
Students, you have seen images and listened to the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. He gave impassioned speeches detailing the problems of society and his dream for a time in the future when the problems would be overcome and the whole nation could celebrate freedom from inequality, togetherness rather than separateness, peace and love.
You now have the opportunity to organize your thoughts about the problems of society today and your dreams for your future, your families’ future and the future of our nation into a speech. Follow the format given on the last page of the “I Have a Dream – My Dream for America” graphic organizer for your rough draft.
Final drafts should be typed, and you should be prepared to read them aloud to others.
