These lessons are great during a testing week. The students watch a short video on each person. Then they complete a short worksheet about the individual. After the 4th video, they begin ranking the African Americans.
In your opinion who was the most important? Let your students debate that. I provided links to the videos used. They have been prescreened and are acceptable in school. The biographies range from 3 minutes to 7 minutes. The average time is 5 minutes. Hope you enjoy and please rate.
