Product Description

The story of a slave who stole a Confederate ship, and ended up as a state senator is one for the history books! Share the impossible mini-biography of a slave named Robert Smalls who's ingenious planning and uncompromising determination helped lead his family and several other slaves to freedom during the American Civil War. This podcast is two parts, the first of which covers his daring escape and is the source material for this quiz.

This document includes:

-a link to the podcast itself, FREE to listen to online

-a link to the quiz, created in Google Forms, so it's easy to adjust, use, and grade. Answer key included!

-a link to a FREE instructional presentation, How To Use Google Forms, which you can also find in my store

I typically listen to the podcast with my students in class, so I can pause it to answer their questions. Then I email them a link to the quiz, which they take and then submit from home, or in the computer lab later that week so I can supervise them.
