Students in 6th through 8th grade at Pittsburgh Manchester Pre-K-8 took time to reflect on the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This StoryBox unit presents the resulting spoken essays about his life as well as through verbal interpretations of specific passages from Dr. King’s speeches.
This StoryBox unit was made possible with support from the Pittsburgh Public Schools Elect student Works After-School Program and The Buhl Foundation. Special thanks to Ms. Sirmons, Mr. Mathews, Ms. Ferraro, Ms. Mole, Principal Cherry, and all participating students.
