U.S. History for Tuesday & Wednesday, March 16 & 17

  1. Completed Venn Diagram comparing and contrasting MLK and Malcolm X.
  2. Students debated their philosophies with a partner.
  3. Each pair created a dialogue between the two men.  See the Powerpoint instructions for the assignment below.  For the "current issue" it asks about, students were to choose one from the following options:  affirmative action, welfare, or "gangsta" rap.  Here are summaries of those three topics so that you have some background information on each.
  4. If you were absent, create the dialogue on your own based on notes you have on the two men and/or information you find about them in the textbook (hint: use the index).
