This lesson plan packet contains six different history themed research paper topics. Each lesson plan is designed to be used individually for grades 7-12. However, each lesson can be easily modified to fit the needs of your students. The following research papers are included in this lesson plan collection.
American Revolution Research Paper
Civil War Research Paper
World War II Research Paper
Civil Rights Research Paper
Cold War Research Paper
American Women Research Paper
Students will research a key person or event for each of the research papers. Students will learn about valid sources and how to write a research paper. I give students three weeks to write their papers, but only allow five class days for research and learning how to write a research paper. Each of these research papers covers very large topics; each paper is a great way for students to focus on individual people and events. Included with each lesson plan are student instructions, a list of topics, and a grading rubric. Please feel free to modify this assignment to fit the needs of your class.
