Why Lesson Planet?
Young scholars read five slave narratives and develop a thesis to use in a Socratic discussion with the text Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. In this slave narratives lesson, students analyze an example slave narrative for speaker, time period, setting, and purpose. Young scholars then read slave narratives and formulate a thesis and questions based on the readings to present in a Socratic seminar. Students annotate their texts and complete a graphic organizer.
