Call to Action: Research Papers – Teaching African American History Update #4

My students are beginning to really focus in on their argumentative research papers for the semester. They have the option to write on anything that is in anyway related to Black History. I asked them to post a quick blog about their topic with an outline of some sources they plan to use so far. Then plan has been that I would then do a quick blog with a link to their topic and ask readers of my blog to add in additional ideas and/or possible sources, such that they have as many ideas and as much feedback as possible.

So, please click the links below, and add in your thoughts! I’m hoping this works out to be a really neat, positive experience for my students. 

Thank you!
