This project is a favorite among students! Your students will work in groups of four to plan and present a talk show. The talk show that your students will create will include the host who will ask the deep and engaging questions and three guests who will answer in an interesting and detailed way. One student will represent the host and the three remaining students should each choose to represent an African American historical figure. Assuming the role of historical figures, your students will discuss various issues such as the historical figures' childhoods, their experiences, challenges they faced and their successes. Your students will improve upon skills such as public speaking, collaboration, writing and research.
These items are included in the product:
✓ A brief introduction
✓ A list of 16 historical figures to choose from
✓ A detailed explanation of the structure of the talk show
✓ A rubric
✓ A list of 10 sample host questions to help give your students ideas
✓ Planning Guide
✓ Editing Checklist
