PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Each word in the crossword is a key word in the study of the memoir written by Solomon Northup.

This could be used as a pre-teaching activity, or as a summary task when your study is complete. I like to use it before reading. Introduce students to the words in the puzzle. Get them (group or pair work) to find the meanings of words. Then use the puzzle to cement that knowledge.

There are 45 words/clues in the crossword. The words used in the crossword are: acquaintance, anxiety, apprehension, arrest, bayou, betray, brig, brutality, cabin, captivity, carpenter, chore, citizen, cotton, cruel, cultivation, cunning, desolate, flogging, intoxicated, kidnap, liberty, memoir, mercy, mulatto, negro, overseer, parish, piazza, plantation, repugnant, sheriff, sinister, skill, slave, slavery, smallpox, swamp, toil, torture, vengeance, violin, warrant, whip and wrath.

Some examples of clue text ...
ACROSS
1. A person who builds or repairs houses and other things made of wood (9)
4. A large farm or estate used for growing rubber, cotton, or other crops to sell (10)
8. A person employed to supervise the work of others; a person in charge of running and maintaining a property such as a plantation or landed estate (8)

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