Event Details

Time to break silence cover

Join us for a day-long teachers’ workshop focused on the newly published anthology, A Time to Break Silence: The Essential Works of Martin Luther King, Jr., for Students. Educators will learn close reading strategies, historical connections, and writing ideas that will enable them to share King’s work with their students and meet the demands of the Common Core State Standards.

An ELA workshop (grades 7-12) will be led by Dr. Kimberly N. Parker, English faculty at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School (MA). A History workshop (grades 7-12) will be led by Dr. Andrea McEvoy Spero, Director of Education for the Martin Luther King, Jr., Research and Education Institute. Following the workshops, join us for a complimentary tour of the Center for Civil and Human Rights. Breakfast, lunch, and transportation to the museum will be provided. All participants will receive complimentary teaching materials, including a copy of the anthology.

All attendees will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a class set of A Time to Break Silence.


A Time to Break Silence is published by Beacon Press as part of the King Legacy Series, a publishing partnership with the Estate of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. For teacher resources, visit www.thekinglegacy.org/teachers.
