Martin Luther King Jr. Shaped by Conn. Town

CBS Assignment America did a nice piece on a student project about Martin Luther King. A teacher at Simsbury High School in Connecticut worked with students to investigate a mystery about whether Martin Luther King had worked in the Connecticut tobacco fields as a young man. What I like about this project is that the students were in charge. The research was real and relevant. Their findings were presented in a video. You can read about the project at CBS. My only complaint is that when I tried to get to the teacher's webpage, it was password protected. I couldn't look at any of this other material. Thanks CBS for sharing this great project!
