PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is such a fun and thought-provoking activity to use with junior high and high school students (beginners and advanced). Who are the most influential persons in history? Who are in your top 10? Why?

The heart of the activity comes from the list created by Michael Hart in his book, The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History. Students guess what his top 15 are, compare them to theirs, and then discuss the entire list in small groups or as a whole class. Students then are to create their own top 10 list with explanations. Great discussions and critical-thinking ensue!!!

The following are included in this outstanding activity:
* Instruction (Lesson Plan) sheet
* Top 15 - Most Influential Chart
* Top 15 Persons Descriptions
* Top 100 Complete List
* Top 100 - Your Opinion Writing Boxes
* Top 100 Cover Page - to use for handout or to introduce on screen
* Alternative Assignments/Projects (Instruction Sheet)

This can be completed in one day (Most-Influential Chart) or over 2-3 days, depending on the depth you want to go. My students love this activity, it gets them talking (arguing too!) and excited about the people on the list. They end up discussing time periods and historical events without even thinking about it! What more could you ask for?
