I think your students will enjoy learning about people who have supported diversity throughout modern history.
This product has many things that you’ll find useful throughout your study. It includes all the components that you’ll need for students to create their own individual lap books. You’ll find specific instructions for your convenience on each page of the lap book’s components. This will tell you how many copies of each page to produce as you prepare your materials. (I’ve combined multiple components per page to cut down on paper consumption.)
This unit also includes a pacing map and instructional plan for the length of the unit. You’ll also find a reading passage for each “hero” that I’ve included in this product. While the reading passages included in this bundle include most all the answers for completing the graphic organizers, I would encourage you to check out books from your school or public library for students to use during their research. This will give them an opportunity to synthesize information from multiple sources.

My name is Erika Bell, and I was born and raised in the great state of Alabama. In 2007, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing, with a minor in Spanish. I earned my Master of Arts in Education from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2011. I am highly qualified to teach English as a Second Language (ESL) for kindergarten through twelfth grade. I have three dogs, whom I consider to be my children. In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching movies, listening to music, and spending time with friends and family.
This year will be my ninth year in education. I was blessed to spend my first four years in education as a Special Education Paraprofessional in my school's Autism Unit. I was simultaneously earning my Master of Arts in Education in ESL while gaining real classroom experience. Since 2011, I have been an ESL teacher, and I absolutely LOVE my job! I get to teach English to students in all grade levels, and my students are always teaching me new words in their home languages and new ideas in their cultures.
I believe in creating an educational experience for students. The more senses that are engaged, the more students are learning. So when you visit my classroom, you'll likely see students moving around and making noise, expressing themselves and learning through doing. I believe in establishing strong procedures and then letting students discover their own learning within those procedures. I encourage students to chase their thoughts if they have a new idea that leads them to a new direction. I believe this is where the most meaningful learning takes place.
