This set of research graphic organizers features 37 black historical and modern figures that have contributed to history in various ways. Graphic organizers are a perfect way to ensure your students are keeping their information organized and focusing on the most important aspects of the person they're studying. This activity is great for biography projects and can easily serve as a note-taking tool for an essay or presentation. It can also serve as the biography project itself! The graphic organizers are perfect for integrating literacy into other subjects, especially social studies. Students will benefit from the experience of learning about these diverse figures. They allow students to go beyond reading to really interact with the chosen text as they determine which facts are relevant.
