Product Description
Solomon Northup, His Life and Times is designed as a multi-purpose informational reading and writing assignment unit for upper elementary students. It can be utilized equally in an ELA class or a Social Studies class. The four texts are continuous but do not have to be done all at once - they could be assigned as the teacher wishes: in class over 1-4 days, as homework assignments, an independent projects, etc. Three of the one-page text begins with a “before you read” question”, each one has a page of questions (inference, factual, and opinion) as well as a page of vocabulary and grammar work. Each text has a short creative writing assignment.

The four texts are: Who was Solomon Northup?, Freedom Lost, Life as a Slave, and A Free Man Once More. Each one is between 280-300 words in length.

The texts are original work of mine and are based on the original narrative as told to David Wilson by Solomon Northup in 1853.

This product is also available in an extended resource which includes a choice board with nine supplemental activities. It can be seen here:
