Martin Luther King, Jr's, I Have A Dream Speech

Eighth graders display their understanding of the symbolism and references that Dr. King used to enrich his famous speech on August 28, 1963 from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, by constructing a jackdaw: a collection of documents and objects. Use this lesson to emphasize a speaker's purpose, argument, and effect.
