I Have A Dream - Pastel Drawings

Discuss the meaning of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have A Dream" speech, explore figurative language, and read about Harriet Tubman and her courage. After the discussion, learners analyze painter/author Jacob Lawrence's use of composition and imagery, develop their own ideas, and use oil pastels to create works of art that show meaning and symbolism. The class creates a rubric and self-assess their work.
