|BLACK HISTORY MONTH RESEARCH PROJECT|
By the end of this project, you will have researched a famous Black American, used technology resources to write at least a 250 word report about that person, and create a Power Point presentation to share with your classmates. This process should involve all of the steps of writing.
GRAMMAR & SPELLING _____/25 pts.
POWER POINT BASED ON RESEARCH PAPER WILL NEED TO INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING ITEMS:
PRESENTATION OF POWERPOINT
The students listening will be asked to sum of the main accomplishments. The audience is encouraged to ask questions.
Extra credit for sharing the work ____pts.
|RESEARCH PAPER TASK:
The student will research one Black American to write a research paper about this person. The student will need to research at least three resources, at least one of the resources will need to be an Internet site. The student will need to read the material first and then take notes in their own words. After the notes are taken from all resources the student will need to combine the information to write a paper in time sequence about their Black American's life.

|POWER POINT TASK:
The student will need to create a Power Point presentation using the researched information of their Black American that will be in an outline form. It is to be used as a guide for their oral presentation.

The students will use the Internet sites listed for their initial research. They will read the information first. Then, they will use the worksheets provided to take notes, not sentences. This process will be repeated for their additional Internet sites, encyclopedias, etc. This will take approximately three to four class periods. (Some of the researching could be assigned as homework.)
The students will then need to reread their notes. Then, they will create an outline of the sequence of events of their person's life. Then they will use their notes to add details and they write the report in theiir own words. It may be hand written or typed. Follow the requirements of the report as listed in the rubrics above. Time spent in school vs. homework time will vary.
The students will use the information from their reports to create at least five Power Point slides. Copies of the layout format of the slides will be handed out to map out their Power Point. Notes may be taken to guide their presentation. This should take approximately one class period.
The students will then use the computer to create a Power Point with the criteria as mentioned above. Time will vary depending on previous experience with Power Point.
We would suggest partnering the students with the same black American for their research. We would partner them with someone with a different reading level to help with the reading of encyclopedias. They would each create their own report and take their own notes.
We would also suggest having the students work with a partner on the Power Point.
