This Black History Month Research Project is a two-part assignment. Students will research and write an essay about their assigned African-American Leader. Students will also create a portrait of their leader.
In years past, I have given my students a variety of guidelines for creating their portrait from making a mosaic using geometric shapes we are studying to working with our Art teacher to feature a style of art they are studying in that class. Their portraits are an easy way to have some bulletin board art for the month of February as well!
To summarize, you will find the following in this pack:
- 2 rubrics- One standard rubric and one FSA aligned.
- A *starter* list of African-Americans for your students to research
- A guided essay outline
I hope your students enjoy this
project as much as mine have! Good luck!
