This guide provides ideas for using the book, "Anthony Burns," by Virginia Hamilton, in adult General Educational Development classes. The book tells the story of a slave who escaped to freedom, but because of the Fugitive Slave Act was returned to slavery until a benefactor bought his freedom. The paper first discusses general ideas for structuring the classes; it then suggests activities for each of the 20 chapters of the book and culminating activities. Activity sheets and an adaptation of Manzo's Guided Reading Procedure are included, along with a synopsis of the teacher-author's pilot testing of the book. (KC)
