Product Description
This one page worksheet prompts students to complete a thorough argument analysis of Frederick Douglass's famous speech "What, to the Slave, is the Fourth of July?"

Some might find Douglass's language difficult, but when broken down, the argument is very straightforward, and is an exemplary way for students to discover the power of persuasive speech/writing.

Students will first read to identify the main claim. They will then re-read to discover the logical reasons/support he gives for his claim. The next step is to support each reason with evidence from the speech. Finally, they will write a short summary of the speech only using the evidence and claims they have written on their worksheet.
