During the Civil Rights Unit in Ms. Farmer's eighth grade Social Studies class, students learned about Martin Luther King Jr.'s "March on Washington" where he gave his famous "I Have A Dream " speech.   After reading the "I Have a Dream" speech by Dr. King, students wrote a dream for themselves, their family/friends, and for the world. "They shared their dreams for the world as they went on a silent march through the hallways of the school," explained Ms. Farmer. "Some students marched for equality for all, a cure for cancer, world peace, an end to war, to stop terrorism, protection of the envrionment and aceptance of all genders and nationalities."
