This handout is a fun, engaging way to end a unit on the rise and fall of Napoleon Bonaparte. It involves students creating two acrostic poems, one that uses the letters in the name "Napoleon" to describe his rise to power, and one that uses the letters in "Bonaparte" to describe his fall. There is also a place for them to visually represent Napoleon in two portraits, one as a hero and one as a tyrant, allowing them to analyze his legacies from two perspectives.
This activity lets students engage with content creatively, and would be an effective formative assessment to see what students learned. It would be an excellent review opportunity before a summative assessment.
