Biographies: Researching People of Interest
For the technology component, teachers may choose to have the students either:
- create a presentation (PowerPoint, Keynote or other presentation software) about one or more components of the person's life (education, accomplishments, impact on society)
- create a first person narrative, using technology, to present information about the person's life (example: A Day in the Life of Rosa Parks)
Students should be encouraged to use at least three types of figurative language in their first person narrative.
Use the graphic organizer (included) for planning the presentation.
