Frederick Douglass Unit Plan, Resources, and Handouts

Frederick Douglass

These Douglass resources and handouts support the unit plan in my previous post

Two days ago, I posted about a unit plan for The Narrative of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave, Written by Himself. In that post, you’ll find lots of information about the unit, which you can purchase by clicking here.

It’s not a perfect unit plan and, as I wrote earlier, each year I teach it I make changes here and there. Those changes are in response to a variety of things… the makeup of the students in my classes, schedule conflicts, and all the other little hiccups that arise during the month or so that we spend studying Douglass.

So, with that in mind, remember that my plan is a “work in progress” that you can use (or partially use — it’s up to you) to introduce your students to Frederick Douglass with a variety of reading comprehension tasks, vocabulary lessons, and collaborative activities.

I’ve made some PDFs that contain the handouts and other printed materials the unit plan calls for. Click on these to download them below.

And here’s the Kevin Bales video featured in the unit plan infographic extension. Bales is Professor of Contemporary Slavery and Research Director of the Rights Lab at the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom. He’s written numerous books on modern slavery, including Blood and Earth, Disposable People, and Ending Slavery.

Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment or ask a question and I will be more than happy to help or clarify. Check back often for more posts on ELA. Here’s a quick link to my post that contains the Frederick Douglass unit plan described in greater detail.

  1. Thanks for sharing your resources. Please make sure to balance them with information on BIPOC achieving and contributing to society too – not just as slaves and downtrodden. I appreciate all you do!
