1-19-2015 MLK Day- Reasoning Practice

Good Afternoon,

For those of you who are interested, please use the following resources to practice reasoning:

“Are Gandhi and MLK similar?” 

#1: Discuss your opinion and give three pieces of evidence to support your reasoning.

#2: Please watch the following video clip and discuss your new learning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BaIg8l7w7qg

#3: Please use the following presentation to further your knowledge: https://prezi.com/9bhwel2sgbw0/comparison-of-mahatma-gandhi-and-martin-luther-king-jr/

* Upon the completion of our college unit, our ss instruction will include a look into the racial divide, our country’s current racial struggles, and how MLK worked to unify our country.  We hope to show the “Selma” movie during this unit and allow the kids to process through this turbulent time in history and examine our current struggles on a deeper level.
