Return to the main Black History Month homepage?
People all over the United States and the world have posted information on the Internet that relates to Black history and African-American heritage. Read through the questions below and explore the Resource List to find the right information to answer each question. Each Webpage holds the answer to one of the questions. When you think you know the right answer, click in the appropriate radio button - - to get feedback. (You can also use the original version of this Treasure Hunt that doesn't give feedback).
Because the point of this page is not to take a test, but to learn some important information, we recommend that once you feel you've learned the information that you do one of two things. First, you could print out the Quiz questions and write down the answers from your memory, or second, write an essay about what's important to learn about Black History. To do this second task, we added a section called the
Big Question to bring your ideas together in a
broader understanding of the topic. This part will guide you through creating an opinion / thesis statement about the most important aspects of Black history. You can use this thesis statement then as the heart of your essay.

The Big Question
Think over the questions above, the answers to
them, and other things you've learned while exploring the Websites. Then put all this learning together by creating a thesis statement that points out the most important aspects of African-American history. What you're trying to convince people about is out of all the aspects of African-American history, what you're suggesting are the three most important.
Use the fields below and the "Build a Thesis" button to create your own "Report of Information" thesis statement. Feel free to return to this page to adjust your wording, then click the button again to revise the Thesis window.
Note: Don't worry about adding punctuation,
ThesisBuilder will do its best to put it in for you.
