This is a small, integrated unit on Slavery in the American War for Independence. The focus is on Dunmore's Proclamation - a promise of freedom to escaped slaves should they serve in the King's Army. Though built to target middle-level students, the unit is easily spiraled up to high school students, especially those performing at lower literacy rates.
The lesson is meant to teach important History/Social Studies related content in an integrated literacy-focused format. Thus, it is useful in ELA and Social Studies classrooms. The lesson is Common Core and NCSS aligned.
