PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A PowerPoint lesson teaches students about Phillis Wheatley, the first African American poetess. Captured as a slave in Africa and brought to the Colonies as a child, Wheatley grows up into an educated and famous poetess of New England...and still a slave. Her life story is discussed, as she becomes a young woman of fame before and during the American Revolution. Her story is one of slavery, freedom, poverty, and heartbreak.

Students will examine her legacy with a reading fact and gathering sheet and discuss how this one young woman is one of our unknown but most fascinating national treasures. This lesson is for grades 6-8 and is excellent for usage during Black History Month or multicultural story-telling during the American Revolution and Colonial time periods. Suggested nonfiction and fiction titles and websites are included.
