Reflection: Real World Applications King Mandela Culminating Writing Assessment - Section 3: Writing Assessment


From this lesson, my students gained an understanding of the importance of standing up for what you believe even if it means losing your freedom or your life in order that justice prevails.  When I read the essays, I noticed one student wrote that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. lived during a time when everyone had to wear black and white.  When I asked the girl where did she get this information, she explained that was her understanding after we watched the "I Have a Dream" speech video which was in black and white.  I had explained to my students that there was no color television at that time but this particular student misunderstood me.  So, I made sure I went back and clarified for all of my students that everyone did not have to wear black and white during the Civil Rights Movement.
