Respecting Other's Differences

Students examine the diversity of their classmates when it comes to food, ethnicity, houses and cars. As a class, they read Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream Speech" and share their responses. To end the lesson plan, they celebrate their differences by writing about how they are different than one of their classmates.

Lesson Planet helps me find fantastic ideas to spin off of and approach with my alternative education high school students. They can be difficult to motivate and sometimes when I'm just out of ideas- this site gives me just what I need to add to motivate them!
