As you study the Cold War in class, you will be working outside of class to learn more about Civil Rights since these key events occurred simultaneously in American History.

You will practice sound research and writing skills to produce a research paper about a key leader, group, or event in the Civil Rights movement.  Your paper will not be a biography, but an analysis of the impact your leader, group, or event made on United States History.  You will need to address not only the short-term impact, but also the long term impact.  This means that you will need to gain some knowledge of the Civil Rights movement as a whole to be able to connect your assigned leader, group, or event, to the broader movement.   

In sum, your paper should address the following question: What was the impact of (your assigned leader, group, or event) on Civil Rights during (his, her, or its) own time, as well as years later?

You will be required to complete steps in the writing process before you turn in your final draft.  As you put your paper together, be sure to review the rubric to ensure you are fulfilling all requirements.
