This biographical resource about Frederick Douglass includes four informational texts with comprehension and opinion questions and a language use question, a quiz, and an intensive vocabulary activity.
--- Each of the four passages can be used one at a time. The text is on the left side of the page and student activities on the right.
The four passages are:
Frederick Douglass’ Childhood
Frederick Douglass’ Education
Frederick Douglass Escapes to Freedom
Frederick Douglass the Abolitionist
(Each text is about 300 words in length.)
--- The resource also includes a quiz in two sections - it could be given at one time or split into two sessions.
--- Rounding things out is a vocabulary activity: students choose a synonym that best matches a word (used in the passages) underlined in the provided sentences. The sentences provided also reinforce what they have learned by reading the four passages about Frederick Douglass.
