teaching MLKing's "Letter from Birmingham Jail"
On Monday, my composition class begins the argumentation section of the course (it's modes-based) and we'll be working with argumentation for the rest of the semester.
In a few weeks, the students will read Martin Luther King's "Letter from Birmingham Jail
," and that's all the scheduled reading they have for the class for that day.
I have some basic things to discuss, but if anyone reading this has used King's "LfBJ" and has some wicked cool activities or particularly useful discussion points, I'm all ears.
