The new lesson plan, Famous Figures of Cleveland, will be coming out within the next week or so. For purposes of educational inclusiveness, I decided to take a break from The Road to Recovery series. This lesson plan will be geared towards students in middle school and early high school, and focuses on individuals who made some kind of difference nationwide. It will be a standalone lesson plan, not part of any series, but fully tagged and searchable within CLEsson Plans. Individuals included in the lesson plan will most likely include oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller, famous poet Langston Hughes, and President James Garfield. This is an important lesson plan because these are some of the well-known figures that brought national attention to Cleveland, and you can teach various aspects of history through these figures.
