Students learn about, or review, Black History Month by visiting 4 websites and answering 15 questions of varying degrees of difficulty. Answers are included where appropriate. This would work for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--Why do you think it was on college campuses that this started evolving into a month long observance?
--Why would Frederick Henry not have realized the importance, and potential legacy, of his actions during the war?
--Inferring from the text and prior knowledge, why is the title of this article “A Double War?”
--Summarize why someone like Maya has earned recognition during Black History Month.
--Do you think we would celebrate Black History Month if slavery were not part of American History, why or why not?
