Black History Character Bios

Black History Character Bios | apptastic edcuation | Scoop.it

During February, many classrooms celebrate Black History month. Students often research famous Black Americans and write a report or share the information in some way. Unfortunately, many students don't know how to research, organize, and write a report and do far too much copying and pasting. The Character Trait Bio activity is a little different from the normal writing assignment because students are asked to organize their essays around character traits which makes plagiarism almost impossible.
