Not quite ready to take down the Christmas tree, Ms. Bond’s 7th grade English students wanted to turn it into a tree honoring the work of Martin Luther King, Jr. You can see some of the decorations being added…a few of Ms. Bond’s favorite quotes from the civil rights leader have already been added. Students will analyze MLK’s “I Have a Dream Speech” and provide in-text citations to support their writing in class. In-text citations helps students give credit to the source they are citing, allows the reader to find the student’s research, and gives the writer a sense of authority to build his or her own ideas around research.
