Gaining Perspective

Discuss race in the United States. Start by having each learner read a copy of Martin Luther King Jr's famous speech, "I Have a Dream." Then, have them read the article "Shared Prayers, Mixed Blessings" about a church in Atlanta, Georgia, and its attempt to desegregate its members, despite some negative feelings that still run deep. A list of comprehension questions are provided, and there's also a list of discussion questions to spark conversation among your class members. A thorough and complete lesson plan is provided here.
