TOP TRUMPS - Biographies of world leaders past and present.

How does Donald Trump compare with Mother Teresa or Abraham Lincoln? Your students can find out with these versatile biography cards.Firstly, they will test your students’ reading skills.Secondly, they will enable them to structure and write biographies of their own.Thirdly, they provide a platform for you as a teacher to critically evaluate your students’ writing with feedback which they will find engaging; encouraging them to write to their very best ability.Fourthly, they provide an insight into Donald Trump’s top team; US presidents of the past; prominent world leaders of today; and influential leaders through history.Fifthly, as a game, this will be a tremendous amount of fun!++++THE BIOGRAPHY CARDS ARE SPLIT INTO FOUR SECTIONS:Trump's Team Trump, Preibus, Spicer, Devos, Conway, Tillerson, Pence, Mattis.US Presidents Obama, Bush, Clinton, Reagan, Kennedy, Nixon, Lincoln, Roosevelt.World Leaders 2017 May, Nieto, Netanyahu, Putin, Trudeau, Merkel, Jong-un, RouhaniWorld Leaders 2017 Mandela, Malala, Mother Teresa, Luther King Jr., Ghandi, Queen Victoria, Princess Diana, Peron.++++HERE ARE SOME IDEAS FOR HOW THE BIOGRAPHY CARDS CAN BE USED:Reading skillsEach biography comes with three questions.RETRIEVE: Students will find this answer in the text.REVIEW: They will need to use summarising skills to answer the questions. Answers can be quoted from the text. The question will make this clear.RESEARCH: Students can use the internet to answer a question. The information cannot be found within the text.Compare and contrastStudents can take any two cards. Their task is to find three differences and three similarities about the characters they have chosen.Highlight the textReferring to the scores under each image, students can colour code the text that applies to each category with a highlighter or coloured crayon.Change the scoresYour students may disagree with the score their character has been given. Allow them to discuss and debate this in class, or with a group. They can then create their own scores in the ‘Write your own scores’ section.They can also colour code, as on the previous activity.Write your own biographiesAsk your students to look at the biographies. What features do they notice? They will hopefully point out that they are written in past tense and third person; chronological order; and summarise major events in a person’s life, often with years.Provide them with a blank template and ask them to complete the biography using the ones they have studied. Ask them to find out relevant information from secondary sources, such as the internet or in books.
