In this post we will continue working on biographies of people who made a difference.
Activity 1: Create a note on a Stixty board created by your English teacher explaining the reason why the famous person you wrote about made a difference in the world. Include an image and a quote. You can also include the link to a website with more information about your character. Follow the examples posted by your English teacher and Rocío and Paula.
Activity 2: After listening to the biography of Charles Dickens on the Stixty board, find the answers to these questions.
- Where did he start working at the age of twelve?
- What were the rumours about him?
- What city of the USA did he visit?
- What was he writing when he had a terrible accident?
- Where is he buried?
Homework for next Monday 19th November: In class, next Monday you will have to present your character explaining why you think this person made a difference in the world, giving some details about his or her biography and and reading the quote. You are allowed to have only a post-it note and the help of the Stixty board where you posted your note.
