Description

Explore and be inspired by larger-than-life people who impacted the shaping of America.

In 5 short weeks, Blackbird & Company research study guides will walk students through the process of composing an original biographical essay.

Week 1 – 3:

  • I introduce a rich vocabulary to describe the character traits exemplified by these historical figures.
  • Provide observation questions designed to help students extract details that matter.
  • Equip students with the scaffolding that enables them to craft one body paragraph that will later become part of the culminating essay.

Week 4:

  • Students craft a simple introduction and conclusion, put the components together, and, voila, an essay!

Week 5:

  • A creative project, of course, that offers directives to tap into the students imagination.
