Product Description

Frederick Douglass holds such an important part of US history and as a teacher, it can sometimes be hard to figure out how to introduce such an historical figure to young minds in an engaging way. This two day intro to Frederick Douglass, and the 1800's in general, will allow students to begin opening their minds to what his reality was while connecting back to present day. There are 14 pages in this resource so feel free to slow the pace down and take 3 days for this intro if you want to!

In order to start this intro, students will have to have a copy of The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass text as that is where the timeline and Preface discussed in the lesson plans is located.

Here's an over view of what you'll be doing:

Day 1: Intro to 1800's by reviewing article and reviewing the timeline of Frederick Douglass's life which is presented in the narrative text.

Day 2: Watch short clip on the Abolitionist Movement from PBS and discuss the Preface written by William Lloyd Garrison.

What is included in this resource:

-2 complete lesson plans with directions on how to run class, utilize resources, and alternatives for different situations

-MA ELA Frameworks for each lesson plan

-Teacher and student copies for necessary resources

-Historical Background on Antislavery and Women’s Rights 1830-1845, by Jack Larkin

-“The Abolitionists: Frederick Douglass, Pacifism, and Abolitionism”, PBS link

I hope you find this helpful and your student find the lessons engaging!
