Bundle contains materials for Women's History Month which focuses on seven Latinas. Can also be used for Hispanic Heritage Month as well. Before viewing each biography for the Latinas, students fill out one column on a KWL chart ( already know). As they view the PPTs they fill out another column (learned). As a closing activity they fill out the last column (what). In that column they write what else they would like to learn which leads to a personal webquest that can be done for HW or if class time permits, students attend the library. I tell them they need to have three "whats" for each famous person viewed in the ppts.
To further enhance the lesson, I have students compare and contrast two of the women using a Venn diagram. If you want to challenge them, then ask them to compare and contrast three of the women using a three circle Venn diagram.
Using the Venn diagrams students write a composition comparing the women. This is a great opportunity to apply what has already been learned in class (sentence structure, grammar, spelling, etc.)
If students need to practice speaking, then I have them read aloud their composition. This can be done as a HW assignment and they can record themselves using their cellphones and email to teacher or Google Voice can also be used.
Some of the ppt also contains activities such as discussion questions to promote critical thinking.
