Elementary School Resource

Learning To Respect Each Other

In this resource, students will understand the following:

  • Dr. Martin Luther King was a strong advocate of nonviolent protest and fought for civil rights for all Americans with an eloquence that can be found in speeches such as his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.
  • Throughout U.S. history, certain groups of people have been discriminated against for characteristics as superficial as the color of their skin.
  • That racism still exists despite the passage of laws that make it illegal. Stereotypes can lead people to make unfair judgments about individuals and groups.
  • Segregation is hurtful and unfair to those discriminated against.
