Have you heard of Curriki, but not yet explored it to find or share K-12 classroom resources?

With Martin Luther King Jr. Day coming up, we decided to illustrate just how easy Curriki is to use. Here is teacher Greg Guy’s (Florida) experience when preparing a lesson to commemorate Martin Luther King, Jr.:

“I decided to test the powers of Curriki by preparing for a lesson for Martin Luther King, Jr. It was November so I was certain the education community would be stumped and unprepared. I found numerous resources using only Dr. King’s initials in the search box. I compiled several resources from various plans and created an elaborate study of Dr. King’s speech which included visual stimuli, a tag cloud of his speech, the audio, and an extensive history of Dr. King’s life and the Civil Rights Movement. Four years later, I’m using this exact lesson plan with every class I teach. I now use Curriki resources in nearly all of my lessons”

Now it’s your turn…

The easiest way to find resources is to use the Advanced Search box:

Start by typing in a key word and check off any other criteria, such as a subject, grade level or rating, which you can access via the pull-down menus.  In this case, we’ll do what Greg Guy tried and type in “MLK.” A list of approximately 20 resources appear.

Curriki offers more than 50,000 learning resources, so I encourage you to explore the site.
