This is a fun way to get students thinking critically about a historical figure. This lesson is Common Core based and requires using evidence in writing. You can use this MULTIPLE times a year since it is adaptable for ANY historical figure.
You will get:
* A well-written exemplary paragraph
*A student writing page
*A condensed exit ticket version of this concept (also great for differentiation!)
Ideas for this lesson:
*Divide students by historical figures, have students work individually, and then bring groups together to form and present full playlists.
*Use as an emergency sub plans since it can be used at any time during your curriculum
*Use as an "oopps I finished too early" go-to
*Use as a way to compare and contrast two different historical figures based
