Main Curriculum Tie:
Background For Teachers:
Student Prior Knowledge:
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Write their positive or negative characteristics on strips of chart paper.
Sort the characteristics according to those that show a positive attitude or negative attitude.
Determine which attitudes help the most people to be the most productive. Have students give reasons or evidence for their answers. Remind students that the circumstances people lived in influenced their choices. Have students determine whether the person they researched was a positive or negative role model. Have them give the reasons for their choice.
Have students select and record characteristics and attitudes that they would like to incorporate in their lives.
Strategies For Diverse Learners:
If others in the class are unfamiliar with these role models, encourage the diverse learner to tell the class about the role model. For English Language Learners, encourage the student to explain as much as he/she is able by having another student help translate, explaining as much as he/she is able, showing pictures, articles, or artifacts from home. The teacher can find out about famous role models and help explain to the class.
Collect pictures of famous people. (Students could draw pictures if printed pictures are not available.)
Sort into 4 groups according to the time period the person lived in (if using historical figures) or according to individuals' characteristics.
Use the pictures to make a collage on a four-sided box (top and bottom removed). Arrange the pictures so that there is one time period or characteristic represented on each of the four sides.
Label and list characteristics on each side of the box. Hang the display in the classroom or set it on a table where students can move around and see each side.
