Product Description
This project is called "Biography of an Influential African-American in the 20th Century." It requires students to research, write a three paragraph essay (informative and persuasive), and create a visual representation of their subject. Students write two paragraphs about their subject's life and then the third paragraph is persuasive, arguing why their subject should be on a postage stamp celebrating their legacy. There is also a required visual component that asks students to create a vision board, playlist, or stamp representing their subject.

This project can be completed in class or at home.

*NOTE: All student-facing materials/resources for this project can be applied to other biography projects as well!

Steps:
1) Students choose a person to research - there is a list of 20 choices broken down by category (government/civil rights, arts, sports, science, business). List is provided.
2) Students complete handout previewing the project - what are you excited to learn? etc.
3) Students research. (I have a handout titled Middle School Biography Project Graphic Organizer for $1.00.)
4) Line-by-line essay breakdown handout for students. Can be used for whole group or as a modification.
5) Write/type full 3-paragraph essay.
6) Create the visual. Students can get creative (options are vision board, playlist, or to actually create the stamp). An outline of a stamp is provided.

*Rubrics are included.
