Tuesday Jan 15th

Today we watched some video of MLK speeches and saw some powerful images. We discussed his voice and his words and his body language as he spoke.

We also heard a song by Will I Am that was inspired by Martin Luther King Jr.

Finally we read the last portion of MLK's The Drum Major Instinct Speech that he gave two months before he died. It talked about what MLK wanted to be known for when he passed.

This will lead into a new writing assignment we will begin tomorrow.

Think about the things you want to be known for when you pass away.

Also, complete worksheet Writing Effective Sentences in the packet I handed out on Monday. This should be completed when you come to class tomorrow.
