Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream"
For this quiz, you'll work together in your groups to find the best information you can to fill in your answers. Each person will individually fill out a complete quiz, but I encourage you to support each other by providing examples, dividing up the readings for additional review, and determining how to apply CHAT. The goal is to learn as much as possible about CHAT so that everyone can get the highest score possible. Note that you'll need multiple examples to support each answer, so it's unlikely that any single person will remember the readings well enough to provide all the examples without some help from classmates.

Please note that I have purposely designed this quiz to be pretty challenging. Do not be alarmed if it seems impossibly hard or long - that's done on purpose. It's designed so that everyone will need to work together in order to successfully find enough examples. I recommend that you all address the questions together - rather than re-reading everything, ask each other what you remember from the texts, and then go back to see what else is needed.
