Extremely handy handouts for History teachers! With these sheets, the students do all the work! (Well, except for the grading.) They are great for independent research practice, or just as a way to force them to study V.I.P's. for a 1920s unit test. They also make convenient homework assignments. Encourage the students to use a variety of sources to fill in the information for each V.I.P. -- textbooks (teach them to look up the names in the index), biographies or websites. The V.I.P's. in this 1920s package include figures from politics (like Warren Harding & Alice Paul), business (Henry Ford), literary culture (F. Scott Fitzgerald & Ernest Hemingway), entertainment (Louis Armstrong & Charlie Chaplin), exploration (Charles Lindbergh & Richard Byrd), and lots more.
ALSO INCLUDED: Double-sided V.I.P. Categorization activity sheets to help students draw their own connections between the famous people and review the list. The categorization activity also provides a great way to go over the V.I.P. sheets as a whole class once most students have completed them.
