This book is impressive in its versatility—teachers can put it to so many uses whether they teach the youngest children, or those slightly older. Younger children can have whole classroom discussions about treating others how you wish to be treated before launching into some role play activities. Older children can draw up Venn diagrams comparing and contrasting the two men’s stories of injustice. They can research and write or present on an issue they feel very strongly about—whether its as complex as discrimination, or as simple as skateboarders being allowed to skateboard outside the building. This book teaches about two men who marched, but it also sets the stage for teaching values and character.
