Listen to the podcast and complete the activity.
Students listen to a well produced podcast detailing the life and accomplishments of Booker T Washington. Two versions of this activity are included at different levels of challenge to enable differentiation of instruction. The first version would be appropriate for middle school students, the second version is more appropriate for high school students, or middle school students who would benefit from more challenging work. I have also included a time stamped Teacher's Guide which presents possible answers to help the instructor lead discussion.
The Podcast is 18 minutes long and the Activity can be completed in about 40 minutes. This lesson will take about one 40 - 60 minute class period.
This activity includes questions at several levels of the 'Bloom's Taxonomy' from 'recall' to 'analyze' to 'synthesis'.
This activity would fit well with lessons on
- Black History Month
- The Civil Rights Movement
- Legacy of Slavery in America
- The Progressive Era
