Instructional Ideas

  • Have learners take note of the many qualities of good readers that these worksheets identify. Then, take those same skills and immediately practice them with another text, perhaps of an engaging short story or informational text related to another famous African American.
Classroom Considerations

  • Some of the worksheet activities, such as Activity #5, require use of a particular supplemental textbook; however, most of the worksheets can be used without access to the book
  • Pupils should have already been introduced to the institution of slavery prior to the Civil War in the United States before beginning these worksheets

  • Worksheets are organized, well designed, and include a variety of reading comprehension activities
