PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

44 clue crossword puzzle (with solution) based on the memoir by Solomon Northup.

This is a summary quiz, designed to be used after reading the book. It could be used for assessment, as a homework assignment or as a filler exercise in class if you have nothing else prepared. I find that students enjoy the crossword format (and don't see it as work), even though it can be quite challenging.

All the clues refer to persons or places which are important in the story. I've written the clues to include key details, so that while students are working on the task, they are actively learning.

Some examples of clues..

ACROSS
1. One of the two circus men who induced Solomon to travel to New York and Washington (7,5)
8. Counselor-at-law, who travels to Louisiana, and to whom Solomon owes his deliverance (5,1,7)
9. Coarse uneducated man who was Solomon's master for ten years (5,4)
13. City in which Solomon is drugged and kidnapped (10)


A word bank is included to assist students. You could redact this to make the puzzle more challenging.
