To this day, he inspires people around the world to work for freedom and equality. Visit the Martin Luther King, Jr. Channel for K-12 content – choice boards, background builders, video segments, historical images, and more.

Strategy of the Month: 3-2-1 Pyramid
  • Students use a graphic organizer to capture their thinking while viewing a DE resource. This builds foundational knowledge that helps students produce a summary. This strategy provides a scaffolded framework that guides student practice as they master the process of summarizing information. View all strategies in the SOS Channel.


Day of Discovery
  • DE is launching a local Days of Discovery this Spring! Perhaps you are interested in participating person, and perhaps also interested in presenting to the group in one of our breakout sessions. The regional day will be on Saturday, March 11 in Downingtown, PA Register here.
  • If you are up for presenting, please submit your proposal here.
