Our Friend Martin
Have you used this DVD during your Martin Luther King unit? I usually have a hard time finding it. So this year, I planned ahead and bought it from Amazon.com. I was lucky and bought it used for under $15. A deal! I usually have the class watch it over a period of days. It does contain some disturbing scenes regarding segregation but also valuable teaching opportunities. I always pause and explain scenes as we watch. Perhaps, you will try it with your class.
Happy Teaching and Learning!
