'Ain't I a woman?' by Sojourner Truth and 'I have a dream' by Martin Luther King.
I am looking forward to sharing this lesson packet with my students as we study Civil Rights. I love the idea of using the leaders’ own words, which transcend time, to make the lesson come alive.

Very useful resources to support a unit on Sojourner Truth and Martin Luther King. Includes text, cloze activities, group work in the form of answering questions and word searches.
Thank you for sharing this fantastic resource. I teach adult literacy and can easily adapt this to embed reading, writing and speaking and listening skills.
