Activity Overview

While reading Stamped, students will encounter historical figures they've heard about, and some that they may not have known about before. In this activity, students will create a map of the historical figures mentioned in the book paying close attention to their impact on the history of racism in America. Students can choose 4 or more historical figures, research their birth, death, place, occupation, accomplishments, and most importantly the positive or negative impact they have had on upholding or fighting to eradicate racism.

The example for this activity contains 24 historical figures mentioned in Stamped along with brief descriptions of each person. These could be printed out as single pages or shown in slideshow mode digitally and used as a preview or recap of the book.
