Eighth grade communication arts classes research civil rights movement

Students in Mr. Randy Turner's eighth grade communication arts classes are studying the American Civil Rights Movement during the third quarter.

During the past two weeks, students have researched various civil rights topics on the internet and through books in the library and from Mr. Turner's personal collection.

The eighth graders have to write a 1,000 word research paper, and do oral and multi-media presentations. For extra credit, many students are attempting to contact and interview some of those who played roles in the movement.
