AfterMartin's Big Wordsby Doreen Rappaport was read aloud to 3rd grade students, they summarized the major events of the text to express their understanding of how Martin Luther King, Jr. worked to defend equal rights for all people. They created a tableau (frozen picture) for each major event, and then connected the events together to create a "Tableau Slide Show." This lesson was one hour (including the reading of the book).
