Martin Luther King Jr. Posters at Heritage

NEWBURGH - Recently, Brian Grodin’s sixth grade students at Heritage Middle School learned about Martin Luther King Jr.’s non-violent philosophy. The students were given a handout that asked them how they deal with conflict in their lives. The students were also given a handout about Martin Luther King Jr.’s six principles of non-violence.

The students were then given a piece of paper that had a number on the back and had some sharpie lines on the front. The students were asked to create a poster that illustrated one of King’s six principles of non-violence. Students had to "respond" to the sharpie lines on their papers when creating their posters. Their posters, when finished, were reassembled into the larger images of Martin Luther King Jr. Grodin then helped the students add some finishing shading to make the images of Martin Luther King Jr. more pronounced. The finished posters are approximately 5’x5’ and are displayed in the Heritage cafeteria.
