This website's purpose is to give information about Susan B. Anthony. For several weeks Holman's sixth graders were on the unit of nonfiction/research. We learned about unreliable and reliable resources, text structure, research skills, and much much more. This project is the final assignment to see our skills, we are supposed research about a person and restate it in our own words. Then the final step was to put all the information in a website.
