BPY Commemorates Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Ben Porat Yosef students honored Martin Luther King Jr. by learning about his life on Monday, January 15. Prior to this day the students in kitah bet learned about the civil rights movement and the role played by Martin Luther King Jr. in this era. In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the students extended their knowledge by talking about sit-ins and peaceful ways to protest segregation in places like restaurants. They also had the opportunity to watch part of Rev. King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech. In order to augment their understanding the students were tasked with writing about a dream that they have to make the world a better place. Kitah aleph applied what they learned about Rosa Parks and the Montgomery Bus Boycott as they dramatized the pivotal moment when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus. Their dramatization included dialogue between Rosa Parks and the bus driver, police officers arresting Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr.’s role in the Montgomery Bus Boycott. The students also enjoyed watching the Martin Luther King Jr. Day video from the Maccabeats and Naturally 7.
