Product Description
This low-prep PowerPoint lesson plan provides the teacher with instructions for a successful 2-3 day lesson using Frederick Douglass' "Learning to Read and Write."
The lesson is broken into three parts.
Part One focuses on defining words in context.
Part Two focuses on determining figurative and connotative word meanings and examining author’s word choice. Students create word cards that allow them to fully explore a word.
Students present their completed product in Part Three, allowing students to increase their understanding of Douglass' word choice throughout the text and to practice their presentation skills.

Rubrics are included for scoring the word cards and student presentations.

The lesson is taught using the Gradual Release of Responsibility Instructional Framework and includes slides for I Do/We Do/You Do that can either be displayed or used for teacher notes.
