What to Read Wednesday!
To celebrate and learn about Martin Luther King, Jr our LMC put together an 11 min. video with interviews of GJHS Wranglers to explore our knowledge of MLK and how he positively impacted our country and the world. Six minutes of the video is MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Please discuss with the students how important it is to go to the primary source (the speech itself and personal quotes) if you really want to know what MLK said.
Please encourage students to visit the links below for more information, books, illustrations, images, timelines about Martin Luther King books and online resources available in our library and online.
There’s also an assignment in GJHS LMC Google Classroom for students that would like to participate in an extension activity that will be posted in the hallways.
Talk It Over Tuesday!
ALL students will participate in peer tutoring today. Consult your peers in Advisory, email friends from class to get help with homework, consult your peers, or create a plan to complete your missing work.
