Reflection: Student Led Inquiry African American Web Quest - Section 4: Closure


From this lesson, my students learn that African Americans have made their marks in many areas, not just sports and entertainment.  I felt it was important to include sports athletes in the research, but I felt it was just as important to show the scale of impact African Americans have had in so many other areas in our nation - government, inventions, education, and political activism. This lesson proved very relevant to my students in inspiring them to achieve great things.
