Honor 9 influential, African-American Heroes during Black History Month, or anytime of the year with these Biographical Constructed Response Passages. This unit helps guide students through writing quality responses to constructed response and extended response questions using text evidence with biographies on 9 common, and not so common, African-American Heroes. This is perfect test prep practice during the winter and spring!
Each passage comes with coordinating questions, using text evidence in responses, aligned with Common Core standards for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. The passages challenge students to interact with rigorous, but interesting and relevant, text. This is the perfect resource, during February for Black History Month, or at anytime, to help you prepare your students for the upcoming state tests like PARCC, while still providing meaningful instruction not focused on test-prep.
African-American Heroes included:
→Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
→The Little Rock Nine
→Booker T. Washington
→Madam C.J. Walker
**The complete passage and questions for Martin Luther King, Jr. is provided for free at:
