After listening to the brief descriptions of African American changemakers throughout history in the award winning books 28 Days and The Undefeated, students will choose one African American changemaker to research and then create a biography poster of important facts and visual attributes to represent that person.
These posters can be printed out, laminated and hung around the room as a powerful reminder of these notable people and their accomplishments.
Students can also present their posters to their classmates, sharing their knowledge about their person.
The posters could also be combined into a book or “dictionary” and that students could read to younger grades for a school-wide, community building activity!
