Famous People: Martin Luther King
We feature Martin Luther King Jr. as ESL-Library’s Lesson of the Week in the third week of January for Martin Luther King Day. This is one of our most popular lesson plans. As your students learn about this famous historic figure, they will learn new vocabulary and get a chance to discuss the “I have a Dream Speech.”
Our Famous People section is full of lessons about well-known figures from all over the world. Visit ESL Library to print out the Famous People lesson that goes with today’s podcast. The lesson comes with a warm up, a reading, a vocabulary review, and comprehension and discussion questions. Preview all of ESL Library’s Famous People lessons here. If you have any suggestions for topics, please leave a comment.
Please introduce your students to our FREE podcasts. These can act as a preview to our lessons. They can also serve as extra listening homework to help your learners develop an understanding of the rhythm of English. Some teachers use our weekly podcast (posted every Wednesday) as a warm up for an online tutoring session.
