February is here! The groundhog has seen his shadow, the Girl Scouts are peddling cookies, and Valentines hearts are everywhere. I would like to add one more blessing to this short, but festive month. In honor of Black History Month, my students have created a short, educational play, based on The Narrative Life of Frederick Douglass. In Douglass’ autobiography he focuses on the realities of slavery. I will discuss this more when you Read With Me The Narrative Life of Frederick Douglass.
My co-op is staging a performance of the play this month. Even a reader’s theater read through will provide a great deal of information on Frederick Douglas and on slavery. Enjoy using this resource freebie with your family, co-op, or class. Let us know how you used it! My students will be excited to know their hard work is educating other students about this remarkable man.
