This resource contains 50 quotes from influential African American leaders, entertainers, sports figures, authors, and cultural icons.
The writing and discussions these quotes, along with the questions that accompany them, not only help to celebrate the contributions of important African Americans in history, but will also create many enriching responses from your students, both written and verbally.
For many years I have been saving important quotes and sharing them with my students throughout the year. This is a compilation of some of those quotes, along with a thought provoking short-constructed response question. These questions can either be delivered in written format, or can be used to start a rich class dialogue.
You can use these quotes and questions as a quote of the week activity,morning warm-up writing, literacy centers, character training activities, discussion starters, or however else you see appropriate!
Each quote comes with a separate page with the quote in larger print, as well as a picture of the quoted person, you can print and hang around your room.
I am sure you and your students will truly enjoy this product!
Thank you for looking!
