Martin Luther King in the UK: complete resource pack for work unit and assemblies over KS2,3 & 4

Martin Luther King in the UK: complete resource pack for work unit and assemblies over KS2,3 & 4

Inspired by Martin Luther King’s historic and poignant final trip to the UK in 1967, this free resource pack explores the legacy of Dr King and the civil rights movement. Unlike most similar resources it approaches King from a UK perspective, reflecting on social issues facing this country. Different parts of this comprehensive pack are aimed at Key Stages 2, 3 & 4. It includes high-quality full lesson plans, hand-outs, worksheets, homework tasks, music recordings and presentation slides for lessons in History, RE, Geography, English, PHSE, Music, Drama, Art and even Chemistry. It also includes material for assemblies. All materials are free. It can be used as stand-alone lessons and assemblies, or as part of a whole-school cross-curriculum activity, for example to mark Black History Month or Martin Luther King Day. It will give teachers and their students a variety of imaginative and thought-provoking ways to remember Dr King and consider his impact today. King's radical 1967 legacy is used to explore present issues facing the UK including overseas wars, terrorism, Trident nuclear weapons, drone warfare, nonviolent protest, international trade, social inequality, and race and identity. It readily lends itself to presentation of material to invited parent audiences: including performance of debates and music, and displays of posters and artwork. Pack created by the Martin Luther King Peace Committee, Newcastle, and financed by Newcastle University as part of Freedom City 2017. King visited Newcastle University in November 1967 to receive an honorary degree. King made a moving impromptu acceptance speech - the video of which was lost in the archives until rediscovery in the 1990s. This pack uses that speech and visit to teach King and civil rights to a UK audience, insisting that King's legacy is best honoured by using his life to reflect on modern challenges.

March - Book Three

March - Book Three

This is the third book in the trilogy called March – Book Three. This graphic novel continues the struggle of African-Americans during the Civil Rights Movement. The focus of this novel is the fight for the right for African-American to register and vote in southern states. John Lewis is the chairman of one minority group called the SNCC, but he also joins the minority group Martin Luther King Jr. is affiliated with to pursue equal rights. John Lewis tells the movements’ stories with truth, frustration, grace, and thankfulness. Both the words and the graphic pictures tell and show students every powerful story in this time period of the pursuit of justice to obtain the right for African-Americans to vote. I have added some sites and videos for students to see to help clarify the events explained in the book. I have also integrated writing and speech assignments into this one giant social studies’ period of time.
