This is a great resource to use with middle and high school humanities classes (English and social studies). It has students look at a series of eight quotes and summarize what they say about life. Then students write down what they know and can infer about the author based on the quote. Most of the quotes are from African Americans civil rights leaders, but a few are from people who violated civil rights. They will try to match the quotes with their sources before being given the actual answers. This activity works on paraphrasing, inferences and analyzing sources.
