Studying American minority groups is essential. Traditional perspectives are often ethnocentric and omit the significant embodied narratives of non-white Americans and events that influenced the course of history and modern society. We must prioritize and include these minorities’ contributions in the study of American history, culture, and modern society.
Students choose from over 100 topics, historical and contemporary, related to Black Americans and events, Latino Americans and events, and Americans of Asian descent and events.
Identifying legitimate sources
Creating a strong detailed thesis statement
Developing a preliminary research and note-taking outline

I include an example thesis statement, preliminary outline, several sample note cards, and a sample Works Cited page.
There is a final draft checklist which could double as a scoring rubric.
There is also a due date chart.
