This packet contains the following primary source readings:
1. The Brutality of Slavery: Quock Walker (1784, Mass.) and N.C. v. Mann (1829) cases contrasted
2. Dred Scott decision excerpts
3. Ableman v. Booth, In Re: Booth cases: Nullification of Fugitive Slave Law of 1850
4. Mississippi's 1865 "Black Codes" reading (full text of codes)
5. African-Americans Under Jim Crow: W.E.B. DuBois and Booker T. Washington
6. Letter From Birmingham City Jail (Excerpts)
7. Civil Rights and FBI Surveillance Webquest
All primary source readings (1-6) have questions about the document (most 10 or more) and can be used as homework assignments, sub-plans, or -- for the next day -- in class discussion topics. The readings are progressive, for example the Dred Scott reading refers back to the Brutality of Slavery Reading, but they also stand alone.
Note: These readings along with more than 70 others are included in my book “Primary Source American History,” along with two mock trials, a mock congress and several dozen projects review worksheets. If you like this (or the free readings on my store), consider getting the complete set.
