Instruction in our classroom meets or exceeds South Carolina College- and Career-Ready Standards. Fourth-grade children like to know how things work. Our standards build on their inquisitive nature to help students develop more complex reading and more effective writing skills. Fourth graders are better able to handle abstract ideas in their work. They can analyze different points of view and the implications of the text. At this age, students are able to take more responsibility for organizing and prioritizing their work.
The following components will be addressed each grading period (ongoing throughout the year):
Class time will be provided for the completion of the reports and presentations. However, students should read for at least 20 minutes at home each day in addition to what we accomplish at school!
Summary: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was only 25 when he helped organize the Montgomery Bus Boycott and was soon organizing black people across the country in support of the right to vote, desegregation, and other basic civil rights. Maintaining nonviolent and peaceful tactics even when his life was threatened, King was also an advocate for the poor and spoke out against racial and economic injustice until his death—from an assassin's bullet—in 1968. This biography celebrates the vision and the legacy of a Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
