Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass: A Compare and Contrast Lesson Plan

This Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass: A Compare and Contrast Lesson Plan lesson plan also includes:

Two great men, one time period, and one purpose; it sounds like a movie trailer, but it's not. It's a very good comparative analysis instructional activity focused on Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Learners will research and read informational text to find out how different and how similar these two leaders were. Research is conducted in pairs, through the reading of historical and biographical texts, note taking, and discussion are then synthesized through the use of a compare and contrast chart. An essay is the final product on a instructional activity that would be perfect to use for Black History Month, President's Day, or when studying the great men of the nineteenth century.
