PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Frederick Douglass, His Life and Times includes two reading passages, two pages of comprehension and opinion questions and vocabulary work, a synonym activity and a quiz.

This resource is timely for Black History Month or teaching about the Abolitionist period. Each of the two texts can be used alone (but in sequence): they could be assigned as the teacher wishes: in class over a couple of days or more, as homework, as independent work, etc.
---The two passages are chronological; Part 1 is titled “Young Frederick Douglass” and Part 2 “Frederick Douglass, Abolitionist”.
---Each text has:
a page of questions (inference, factual, and opinion) and
a page of vocabulary and language use work and
a short creative writing assignment.
There is also:
a two-page synonym activity (ten sentences that include information from the passages: students are to choose the word that is closest in meaning to the underlined word) and
a short quiz that consists of six multiple-choice questions and one short answer question.

A full answer key is included for all objective work.
