Assignment description and sample topics: During this library session, I
would like the librarian to guide students to the Biography database where
students can learn to use this DB and search for a historical figure who
accomplished something regarding social justice. Students will have a list
of people to begin with, but will also be able to search from the "related
topics" on the biography database or about more obscure people who interest

one reference -- I may have them read fewer sources if they are reading a
longer source. They won't have time to read a book or anything of that
length. More shorter articles is the idea. They will be writing a poem
about the person they research from that person's perspective.
