This is a quick 5 - 15 minute, first week opener for history teachers in upper elementary to junior high. It's goal is to make students think about what they might be remembered for in many years to come. It makes a point of stating that history remembers the good and the bad and then asks them to think about what they WANT to be remembered for.
It is not part of a lesson plan nor is it very detailed. This is intentional. The point is to get students thinking introspectively early on. Plus, I want to give the teacher to use this resource in whichever way they see fit.
I would recommend having students write their names on the BACK of the paper and then hanging these outside the classroom to show work and higher order thinking skills early on in the year. (But, this is what works for me....)
Cheers as you come up with your own, personal uses for what I hope is a fun and interesting activity that doesn't require the usual, "My name is ____ and I like ____." ;)
