Ideas for Reports and Papers

(Beacham's Guide to Literature for Young Adults)

1. Compare and contrast New Orleans' Carondelet Street and New York's Wall Street in 1899. Does Carondelet Street still exist?

2. Trace the history of the women's rights movement beginning with the first political convention held in 1848 at Seneca Falls, New York, and ending with the current decade. By way of a pictorial timeline, relate significant incidents to other historical events of the times.

3. The Grand Isle was destroyed by a storm in 1893. Investigate the storm that destroyed it. Develop a series of news items that might have appeared at the time that (a) predict the storm, (b) cover the news as it is happening, and (c) report the results of the storm.
