Study Help Practice Projects


1. Sethe's story is based on an actual slave mother, Margaret Garner, who killed her child rather than see it returned to slavery. Research Margaret Garner's story and write a report describing the similarities and differences between it and Beloved.

2. Create a timeline documenting the events that occur in Beloved.

3. Construct a Web site that other students reading Beloved could use. The Web site should include a page about major themes in the book, a page about Toni Morrison, and a page about slavery in the United States.
