Today is deadline for first draft of civil rights research paper

Today is the deadline for the first draft of the 1,000-word civil rights research project for Mr. Randy Turner's eighth grade communication arts at South Middle School.
No penalties will be assessed for turning the paper in late if I receive it by 12 midnight at

All papers must include five sources, at least two of which must be books. Parenthetical references should be used.

Next Friday, Feb. 15, is the deadline for the multi-media portion of the project. Posters and collages will be put on the walls around the school as part of the observance of Black History Month.

Students will do oral presentations on their Civil Rights Movement topic next week.

We will watch the 1990 film "Separate but Equal," starring Sidney Poitier as Thurgood Marshall beginning Friday, Feb. 15, and continuing during the following week.

The annual Civil Rights Project will conclude Friday, Feb. 29, when the final draft of the 1,000 word research paper is due.
