Product Description
Having posted a series of biographies on important figures in American history between the mid-17th and early 20th centuries, I have also chosen to offer these biographies as a single collection.

Included in the zip file are 26 biographies:

Abraham Lincoln
Alexander Hamilton
Andrew Jackson
Andrew Johnson
Benjamin Franklin
Charles de Montesquieu
Denmark Vesey
Dred Scott
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
George Washington
James Madison
James Monroe
Jefferson Davis
John Brown
John Locke
Lewis and Clark
Lucretia Mott
Nat Turner
Niccolo Machiavelli
Susan B. Anthony
Theodore Roosevelt
Thomas Hobbes
Thomas Jefferson
Thomas Paine
William Lloyd Garrison

Each biography incorporates a series of questions based on the reading. Questions range from identification to drawing conclusions about the reading.

In using this in my own class room, students are encouraged to:

1. Number the paragraphs

2. Read the biography

3. Highlight answers in the reading

4. Use complete sentences.

The answer key demonstrates these steps.

Originally priced at $2.25 each, you can download the entire collection for $45.

These biographies are a wonderful way of encouraging a deeper connection with the individuals studied in class.

I am continuing to add biographies to the series. If there is a specific one you wish to see, please let me know.

Please feel free to browse the store for other products related to US History, World History, and Government.
