    A1: I first learned about Martin Luther King, Jr. when I came to Wayne Township to teach. I read books about him to my first graders and emphasized the importance of solving problems peacefully. #wearewayne @BPEKnights

    A1: When I attended IPS in Elem. I had great experiences learning about MLK and how he fought for equal rights for all people #wearewayne #CSSips #ColdSpringsElementary

    Although the US Gov recognized the holiday, Ball State did not. I helped organized a protest to make BSU recognized the holiday. #wearewayne

    Same! I don't think Dr. King was ever mentioned in my small town schools until I took American History in high school. #WeAreWayne

    Q2: What's your favorite way of sharing MLK's message with your students? I bet @MsMelsonCHC has some knock-socks-off ideas #WeAreWayne
  • AngelaBarnes09 Jan 15 @ 8:18 PM EST
    Yes, ma'am. There were entire states that refused to recognize the holiday at the beginning. We were glad our university finally did. #wearewayne

    A2: I spend a lot of time on civil rights. Right now, we are reading Dear Martin by Nic Stone. We just did a Socratic Seminar on privilege. We study the Children's March in Birmingham, Emmitt Till, Selma, ... I take Ss to AL on the civil rights trail. #mypassion #WeAreWayne

    Eye opening, complete engagement, so many emotions. Ss that can be pretty quiet, develop a voice. They don't want class to end. ❤️ #WeAreWayne
