Biography Hanger People
span the grade levels. I remember teaching it every year of my career, no matter if I was in 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade. Because the students get so much exposure to it, I like to make sure that when they get to my class, we do something *slightly* different with the writing. One thing I LOVE to make (mostly because they come out so well) are "Hanger People". These artistic depictions of historical figures are a great way to engage the kids and keep them interested in this genre (and make sure you never hear "we did that last year".) Using a hanger, tagboard, and some art supplies, the students get to show their artistic ability, yet still be true to the research they did.
Come visit me at Teaching in Room 6 to see how I have helped my students create these presentations. You will also read all about how I scaffold the writing for my ELL students to ensure success with the writing. See you there!
