Teach students how to write a report, using an inspiring woman.
We do not teach enough about women who have made a difference. We speak and read picture books of, Rosa Parks and Harriet Tubman ...but, we do not make a huge deal about how they were WOMEN. We also do not accentuate more influential women. I will speak for me...I do not.
When I speak of these heroic women, I say just that...they are heroic. I do not think I punctuate that they are female, necessarily.
We have so much to teach, so sometimes these "_________ Month" dates, remind us to teach these other important pieces of history and education.
I will include a lesson which includes 2 full NF notes on Harriet Tubman and Eleanor Roosevelt.
These can be done on iPads, as my students have done, or written out onto paper.
Mostly, the lessons are on report writing, and opinion writing.
Also, show how to write an opinion piece, using the same women.

Do you only teach Black History during the month of February. I think it is so much a part of our world, and daily life, that it should be mentioned and taught regularly.
Black history is a passionate topic. I enjoy teaching it, and seeing the look on the kids' faces when I tell them how messed up the world used to be.
Try teaching more of this important history, during all times of the year!!
I have a play on Civil Rights, as well as a few MLK lessons at the following link.
