This Zoom-In: Speaking with Purpose lesson plan also includes:
Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech provides the impetus for a persuasive speech instructional activity. Class members listen to this famous speech while looking at photos of King taken while he delivered the speech. After discussing the text of the speech and the passion King presented when he delivered it, young orators craft and deliver their own. While the link to the referenced photos seems to be broken, the images are readily available on-line.
