MLK Bulletin Board - Timpson High School freshman students completed a cross-curricular project combining writing in English I and typing in Keyboarding class with the completion of a bulletin board honoring the memory of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. After reading and analyzing Dr. King's famed "I Have a Dream" speech each student selected a single "dream" from the speech and wrote a paragraph explaining the meaning behind Dr. King's words. The finished paragraph was then taken to Keyboarding class where students typed their writing for display on the hallway bulletin board.
