This is a comprehensive packet for Frederick Douglass and the short chapter from his narrative, "The Battle with Mr. Covey. You might notice as you peruse my store that each of these items is listed individually, as well as, bundled. For example, the answer key for the assessment is listed separate from the assessment itself.... This is not because I am greedy or want to squeeze one more dollar out of you. Had I included the answer key with the assessment, I would have listed the price at a dollar higher anyway.
No, I list everything separate because as a teacher, I know, that sometimes you want some material but do not want other material. And, you should not have to pay for items you do not need. To continue with my previous example, you might just want to do the answer key yourself and save the money.... I completely understand the need to save money; what teacher doesn't :) But if you do want it all...
This packet contains about one week of work, give or take a day. I have, intentionally, not included lesson plans with these packets because I feel, at times, they can be stifling.... The idea here is; you can pick and choose whatever material you want; in whatever order you want (depending on the time you have); instead of, constantly feeling like you must adhere to a certain schedule. Plus, this way, you have many resources at your disposal and can mix and match from year to year depending on your mood. This packet contains the following:
- Douglass 2-Column Notes (These notes accompany the A and E Biography: Frederick Douglass. This is a great video because it gives the class a solid background on The Civil War and slavery issues, as well.)
- Essential Journal Questions Powerpoint (These accompany the information the students will learn about his life and his work.)
- Battle with Mr. Covey: Full Text
- Battle with Mr. Covey: Questions
- Battle with Mr. Covey: Reading Assessment
- Battle with Mr. Covey: Reading Assessment Key
- Battle with Mr. Covey: Feelings Chart
- Battle with Mr. Covey: Feelings Chart Key
- Song: Slave Spirtual (I have the students listen and watch this video and draw how it makes them feel. This is different from other music I incorporate, in that, there are no lyrics per say... But it is a very interesting activity all the same :)
Please contact me with any questions or observations you might have :)
