Students will read an informational text about Frederick Douglass. Born into slavery, Frederick Douglass became one of the most celebrated abolitionists of the 19th century. His story of escaping from slavery, becoming a famed orator, newpaper publisher and political figure is still an inspiration.
The text is followed by a series of multiple choice questions aligned with various strands of the CCSS Grade 5 English Language Arts Standards for Reading.
Those strands are:
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.5.1 Quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.
