Martin Luther King Jr. Inspired Class TED Talks

We watched some short clips on Martin Luther King Jr. and had some class discussions on what his passions were or issues that were important to them. Afterwards, we watched some TED Talks given by kids. Finally, the students thought about something they wanted changed in the world. For a week, they practiced their speech, knowing they could have talking points, but not just reading a speech. They could also have images. Students presented them to the class as if they were giving a TED Talk, while students took turns introducing and filming. I was really proud of the students for having the courage to get up and speak in front of the class.
