Product Description

In this lesson, students will examine excerpts of to understand Douglass' views on slavery and how it was just as detrimental to slave-holders as to slaves.

This lesson provides students the opportunity to interpret primary sources; examine documents written by a slave; and put themselves in the shoes of both slaves and masters.

EDIT:

I have an excellent group of juniors who began an extensive debate after this activity. Some debate/discussion questions you could pose to your students include:

- Is it fair to say that power corrupts? Can powerful individuals be forgiven for their corrupt nature?

- Should societal pressures be to blame for horrific events, like slavery?
