Patchwork of African-American Issues

Hotlist | Subject Sampler | Treasure Hunt | WebQuests

The following six Web sites were created as models to suggest ways to integrate the World Wide Web and videoconferencing into classroom learning. African-American History was chosen as a topic because of its importance, popularity and the wealth of Internet resources available on the topic. What we hope to add to this richness are some specific strategies for integrating the Web into learning. So rather than merely send learners to a Web site, we've arranged separate formats designed to support different kinds of learning. Read the blurbs below to help you decide which activities you might want to use.

Hotlist Black History Hotlist is a starting point for anyone studying African-American events and issues. If you have your own learning activities in mind, you might use these links as raw material or the place to begin independent research.

Interactive Treasure Hunt
Treasure Hunt If you want to test your knowledge of African-American history (and even develop an essay on the topic), try the Interactive Treasure Hunt & Quiz. When you know the background information on a topic, learning more and feeling connected to the subject come naturally.

Subject Sampler
Sampler Maybe you don't feel personally connected to African American issues. We think that once you care about a subject, it will be easier to learn about it. The Subject Sampler Sampling African America helps you engage in the topic and explore things about it that personally interest you.

Little Rock 9 WebQuest Why worry about stuff that happened in the days when Eisenhower was President and Elvis was King? In the WebQuest Little Rock 9, Integration 0?, students learn about nine African-American students who, back in 1957, chose to attend an all-white high school in Little Rock, Arkansas.


In the WebQuest Tuskegee Tragedy, students explore the issues of the Tuskegee Study and question the comparisons some people make to the study and such topics as abortion, gun control, and concentration camp experiments.By the time the study was exposed in 1972, 28 men had died of syphilis, 100 others were dead of related complications, at least 40 wives had been infected and 19 children had contracted the disease at birth." (Quoted from CNN Interactive)
