Create a multimedia magazine. Combine photos or drawings you find or create with articles you write about your Paul Robeson theme.

2. Dramatic or Musical Performance:

Perform scenes from several plays and/or films in which Paul Robeson performed. Use the classroom as your stage and be sure to figure out the blocking (the movements of the actors in a play) for each performer. Assign one person in your group to design the costumes.

3. Print Magazine:

Publish a magazine about your Paul Robeson theme. Include pictures and/or photos, articles, editorials, and puzzles. You may want to create advertisements that might have existed in the time period on which you choose to focus.
