Product Description

This lesson connects three texts – Robert Hayden’s poem, “Frederick Douglass,” an excerpt from Frederick Douglass’s “My Bondage and My Freedom,” and an online article from The New York Times, “Malala Yousafzai, Girl Shot by Taliban, Makes Appeal at U.N.” Not only does it make real world connections to make learning relevant for your students, but it also meets expectation of Common Core Curriculum by employing rigorous nonfiction text.

Use this lesson to give your students practice with close reading and the synthesis of ideas. Activity handouts focus on before, during, and post-reading strategies and culminate in a short essay, which asks students to consider why education may be limited for certain groups of people.

Additionally, links take students to two video clips on the Internet, one from Poetry Out Loud and the other at The New York Times. These videos facilitate the learning of auditory and visual learners. Furthermore, this lesson incorporates all strands of the Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) Standards.

The 20-page resource includes the following:

  • explicit lesson plan with identified Common Core Anchor Standards
  • handout with journal and pre-reading activities
  • vocabulary practice
  • poem and excerpt texts
  • graphic organizers
  • post-reading questions
  • essay prompt
  • essay rubric
  • keys
  • sample essay
