Today in the States we celebrate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In that spirt I share with you a web page that was created about 10 years ago. It is a timeline created by kindergarten and first grades students at Buckman Elementary in Portland. The site highlights the major events in the life of Dr. King and is based on a timeline from the book, My Dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, by Faith Ringgold. Since the time we published this on the web, I have received email and letters addressed to the students expressing appreciation for their work. Even 10 years after first being published, I still get emails this time of year asking about the work. It was something that my students and i did that first showed me the power of giving students an audience for their work.
Below are a few images from the timeline.
