http://library.advanced.org/10320/Spingarn.htm

There are five activities in the Stamp On Black History section. Four of these will be discussed here. Click on the link at the top of this page. This explains the Spingarn Medal, gives a list of some winners, and then lists all five activities. This begins with the second activity. [Skip the first activity and begin with the second.]

Ask permission to print out these directions.

  • The second activity, the Spingarn Medal, asks you to decide who you would give the NEXT Spingarn Medal to and then write an essay:
    • If you are in GED, explain why you chose this person.
    • If you are in ABE, you may write a sentence or a paragraph explaining why.
    • Click on the link at the top of this page to read more about this activity. You will write with pen and paper or in word processing on your computer.
  • The third Spingarn Medal activity asks you to design your own medal. The form shown on the site does not print out in useable form. Your teacher may give you a form he/she made for you OR you may use a blank piece of paper to design your own medal. The medal would be awarded for whatever you decide. This is a creative activity. Think about what kinds of things a person might do that would really help people that are so wonderful they deserve a medal and celebration. This activity is great for both ABE and GED .
    • Click on the link at the top of this page to read more about this activity.
  • The fourth activity is related to number three. After designing a medal, write a paragraph or sentence describing what a person would have to do in order to win this medal. This medal would be awarded every year to a different person. This would work well for both ABE and GED . You may write on the same paper that you designed your medal or you may use another piece of paper for your writing.
    • Click on the link at the top of this page to read more about this activity.
  • The fifth activity relates to numbers three and four. The great question Who would you select to be the first recipient of your newly designed award? This would work for both ABE and GED.
