TPT Thursdays: Literacy and Liberation with Frederick Douglass and Malcolm X (Free)

Every Thursday, I plan to drop a resource that I’ve shared via TeachersPayTeachers. This Thursday, I’m sharing a quick guided reading lesson that utilizes excerpts from both Malcolm X and Frederick Douglass. The central question that will tie them together is this: How is the act of gaining literacy seen as a step towards liberation of the mind and spirit?

This resource includes the text excerpts, PSAT/SAT aligned text-dependent questions, and a framework for making useful annotations. Please let me know what you think, and if you use TeachersPayTeachers, go ahead and follow my store for more materials that feature Black Diaspora Literature.
