Researching African Americans Who Made a Difference

Celebrate Black History Month with this lesson, in which middle schoolers create an essay about a famous African-American. Writers conduct research online, take notes to write an essay in proper format, and use ideas, text, and graphics to design posters. They practice oral presentation skills by reading excerpts from their essay at a school-wide Black History Month celebration.
