COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH PROJECT Influential People and Events in Black History



The sequence of tasks is as follows:

1. Assemble a team.

2. Conduct a quick search on three topics and determine first, second and third choice.

3. Assign topics through lottery.

4. Access databases (this product is editable, so you can list the databases available to your class).

5. Everyone read two articles.

6. Create an action plan (assign tasks to team members, etc.)

7. Create a thesis statement.

8. Take notes on notecards.

9. Create an outline (brainstorm, organize, group related points, etc.)

10. Compose.

11. Format citations (MLA 8th Edition).

12. Edit using checklist.

13. Format Works Cited list.

14. Prepare final draft.

I provide examples throughout the activity using the Harlem Renaissance as my topic.

There is an example thesis statement (annotated), sample note cards (direct quote, quote from secondary source, summary note), partial outline, sample Works Cited page with five sources.

For example, if you chose The Harlem Renaissance, your thesis might be:

The Harlem Renaissance, in the northern cities of the United States in the 1920s and 30s, through its art, music, and literature provided black Americans a voice with which to initiate a discussion about the problems of racism in the country.


There are 44 topics from which to choose.

There is also a blank chart to list due dates.

I've also included two Task Charts that students fill out as proof that they are on task and on schedule. These also allow me to monitor progress and individual's contributions.

Includes a peer evaluation addressing contributions to the project and collaborative skills.
