Product Description
This English language arts, poetry, and writing product has been created as a way to help 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students learn more about the lives of twelve (12) amazing and heroic Black American Trailblazers: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; Frederick Douglass; Rosa Parks; Ruby Bridges; Jackie Robinson; Sarah E. Goode; Thurgood Marshall; Harriet Tubman; Jesse Owens; Sojourner Truth; Booker T. Washington; and Marcus Garvey.

How It Works: As a way of helping themselves gain a better understanding about the impact and influence that twelve (12) Black American Trailblazers had on United States History during the 19th and 20th centuries, students practice reading originally written poems either independently; whole-class; with literature circles; or as a performance for a drama/acting club (Reader’s Theater, for example), All poems are exactly one page in length and include a range of details regarding the lives of each Black American Trailblazer. Writing Work printables are also included.

Gentle Suggestions/Tips/Reminders:
*This poetry resource includes a total of twelve Black American Trailblazer Poems. NOTE: There are two versions of each poem available.
*INK SAVER ALERT! But for a few nonessential pages, this product has been produced entirely using black and white ink. You may choose to copy the student covers, table of content page, and poems on bright colored paper to give them a look that “pops!”
*The poems are quite long in length. For this reason, they SHOULD NOT be read specifically for fluency and decoding practice, but for oral language development, comprehension (understanding), and fun!
*Twelve (12) Writing Work printables are also included with this resource.
*A 3-page Black History Mini-Glossary is included with this resource. There is a total of 36 vocabulary words that have been pulled directly from the poems.
*Want your kiddos to write a report on a Black American Trailblazer? A report cover + 2 styles of lined writing paper have been specifically included for this purpose
*Included is a total of twelve (12) images--one for each Black American Trailblazer.
