Today we started our unit on biographies. This will be linked with our social studies unit as the students' final task will be to create a biography on a human rights hero.
Today we brain stormed what a biography can include. The students came up drafted their ideas which we then discussed.
Students then watched a chort documentary (5 minutes) on Martin Luther King Junior. We practised note-taking. They then wrote a short paragraph biography on him. Here is the video.
