the abolitionists

we started by writing important facts & questions about two topics: (1) slavery in america, and (2) slave resistance. then, while i sorted through their responses, students wrote their best answer so far to the question "how did abolitionists fight to end slavery?". i then recapped what we knew so far about slavery and slave resistance before doing a brief recap lecture on our three expert texts from last week: the underground railroad, john brown, and uncle tom's cabin. finally, we watched the first 20 minutes of part 3 from pbs' american experience - the abolitionists (watch here). 

students should read & annotate the "slave resistance" text (below).
