For the culmination of reading the novel A Wrinkle in Time I have my students research a "fighter against the darkness" - A person in history or modern times who has made the world a better place. After their research the students must write an essay and present a visual about their chosen "fighter". Included are the two handouts that I give the students. The first is a research worksheet that leads them through what they need to learn about their "fighter" and what they should include in their project. The second is a list of over forty "fighters" and a short description of who they are or what they did.
