This week, we are going to be looking at Martin Luther King. He was famous for his 'I have a dream' speech and contributions to American civil rights. 


Task 1: Watch the video clip that introduces the 'I have a dream' speech. 

  • What was the speech about? 
  • Why did Martin Luther King make the speech? 
  • What did he want the outcome to be? 
  • How did people react?
Task 2: Read through the powerpoint and read all about Martin Luther King. 

Task 3: 

Think about things that you dream of and what you would change about the world and write your own 'I have a dream speech'.
Ensure you include dreams for at least 5 different points, telling me how it would make the world a better place.

I have attached quotes from Martin Luther Kings speech below. Take a look and steal some of his vocabulary to help you write your own.
