Brown, Wesley, Ed.
The 12 essays in this book provide a variety of ways to get students engaged and inspired by the "Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave" (1845). Most of the essays emphasize writing as a means for students to learn about Douglass, his times, and his legacy, as well as implications for the students themselves. Essays include: (1) "Knowledge Is Power" (Lorenzo Thomas); (2) "From the Heroic to the Personal" (Margot Fortunato Galt); (3) "Narrative of the Life of English 3B" (Marvin Hoffman); (4) "What Frederick Douglass Doing in a Place Like This?" (Douglas Day); (5) "Frederick Douglass" (Opal Palmer Adisa); (6) "Frederick Douglass and Elie Wiesel" (Peter E. Murphy); (7) "Going to See Frederick Douglass" (Martin Haber); (8) "Using Douglass''Narrative' as Motivation for Student Writing" (Charles Kuner); (9) "A 'Kindred' Assignment" (Joyce Dyer); (10) "Frederick Douglass" (Alfred E. Prettyman); (11) "Frederick Douglass in Newark" (Meredith Sue Willis); and (12) "Thirty-two Writing Ideas Using Douglass''Narrative'" (Jordan Davis; Christopher Edgar; Ron Padgett). Additional information is available from resources on Frederick Douglass along with a brief chronology of his life. (EH)
