Booker T. Builds a School
The inspiration of Booker T. Washington is brought to life in this Motivator Map for Educators as participants learn about and emulate his accomplishments. The inspiration comes from his extra-ordinary efforts to teach himself to read and then overcoming challenge after challenge to build the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute, by hand, crafting brick by brick…a story everyone should know. The challenge is to design a school first. If you happen to have blocks (we suggest Kapla Blocks) then build a school just like Booker T. did. The cluster offers both the Motivator Map and power point and a short bio of Washington.
