Famous Latin Americans
This unit introduces students to 10 quick biographies of famous people who have made significant contributions. I made these for hallway bulletin boards I was responsible for in my school. I strategically set them up near the cafeteria and gym, places where students stood in line for a few minutes. And they read them!
Everyone needs heroes, people to look up to and aspire to be like. As an ESL teacher, I wanted my students to recognize themselves in highly accomplished musicians, scientists, doctors and astronauts. May these biographies inspire and encourage your students!
