Prepare students for common core testing with this seasonal performance task during Black History month. There are five lessons with an argumentative writing opportunity as a culminating activity. A Core Rigor argumentative writing organizer is provided.

Lesson 1: Underground Railroad Video
The prescribed video is no longer available. I recommend YouTube's "On
Freedom's Path, The Slaves of the Underground Railroad" by Gabriel
Martin Escobar: www.youtube.com/watch?VTupYFRRLFAD or you may
use a video of your choice.
