The lead-up to Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on January 18, 2021 is a particularly good time to teach your students about racial equality—and, more specifically, Dr. King's accomplishments and legacy. This includes everything from the resonating messages in his "I Have a Dream" speech to MLK becoming a symbol of nonviolent protest.
We've compiled some Martin Luther King, Jr. Day bulletin boards from social media to help you brainstorm ideas for your own MLK board, whether you're creating one for your face-to-face classroom or as a backdrop for a remote teaching setting.
MLK Bulletin Board Ideas
The bulletin board below includes contributions from students on the Post-It Notes along its border. Students shared their own dreams in recognition of the "I Have a Dream" speech, which MLK delivered in 1963 at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. If you're teaching remotely, you can have student submit their notes via email. As this teacher did, use variety of bright colors to draw in your viewers.
