PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product contains an excerpt from The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass with a series of text-dependent-questions that can serve as the basis for a close reading of it. The excerpt comes from the pivotal scene when Douglass's master forbids his wife from continuing to teach Douglass to read. This moment is a turning point for Douglass in which he grasps that reading/literacy will be the key to unlocking his freedom. The lesson plan includes both a teacher and student version. The teacher version has exemplar responses for each question. Teachers can implement the close read in a variety of ways, and recommended processes are included in the document. The series of text-dependent-questions builds toward a culminating writing task. This close read has been fashioned after the exemplars advocated by Achievethecore.org. The accompanying Common Core Standards are listed at the top of the document.
