If You Lived at the Time of Martin Luther King is my favorite book to use when teaching students about Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights movement. This book has an engaging question-answer format that really builds background knowledge. Students begin to understand what it was like to participate in the Montgomery Bus Boycott, stage a sit-in at a segregated lunch counter, join the March on Washington, and so much more. I would use this resource as a springboard for blogging discussions. My students always have such genuine, authentic responses during the share aloud of this book, blogging will provide them an audience for collaborating and sharing ideas.
