Yesterday, many schools across America observed Martin Luther King Jr. Day. While teachers and students both enjoy the extended weekend, we must never forget that this day serves to remember Dr. King’s achievements and dreams of racial equality. With Black History Month only two weeks away, now is the ideal time to introduce African-American biographies into your classroom!
The Hameray Biography Series features the life stories of famous African-Americans: Martin Luther King Jr., Harriet Tubman, Muhammad Ali,Barack Obama, and Jackie Robinson. Although his work was based in South Africa, Nelson Mandela’s fight to end apartheid is also a relevant and inspirational account during Black History Month. Providing a diversity of historical topics, from the Civil War to Major League Baseball, your students will be sure to find a biography that piques their interests.
At Guided Reading Level M–S, each biography is written as a Hi-Lo text for reluctant readers. Our Hameray Biography Series Teacher’s Guides provide ideas for you to build social studies and literacy knowledge at the same time! Each Teacher’s Guide is specifically tailored to one biography, saving you plenty of time when you create lesson plans.
