Olaudah Equiano

Eighth graders describe in detail a time in their life when they were the most afraid, causes of the fear and how they overcame it. This experience is compared/contrasted to the actual circumstances behind slave auction blocks. They read out loud excerpts (a primary source) from Olaudah Equiano's autobiography. Note: this lesson is not specific about which part of the autobiography you need.

Lesson Planet has helped me find things that work but more importantly things that don't work for me as a teacher. Every teacher is unique in their style and Lesson Planet has helped me define my style.
