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. Perfect for Black History Month, the graphic organizer can also of course be used year-round. 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 organizer is perfect for integrating literacy into other subjects, especially social studies. Students will benefit from the experience of learning about these diverse figures, and they allow students to go beyond reading to really interact with the chosen text as they determine which facts are relevant.
Each 2-page graphic organizer has space for the following information:
•Important people in their lives
•Childhood (how and when did they grow up?)
•Education & career
•Challenges they faced
•Major life events
•Where are/were they from? (includes mapping component)
•What lesson(s) can you learn from them?
•Resources where you can learn more
