Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, An American Slave by Frederick Douglass (book will be sent to your address or pictures if necessary)
Paper on Douglass book should be 5-8 pages typed and double-spaced.
NO OTHER SOURCES ALLOWED. ONLY THE book which will be provided to you via mail.
Cite quotes and facts as needed. Limit citations and none should be longer than one sentence. Paper should describe what it was like to be a slave in the United States as told through the experiences of Frederick Douglass. Be as thorough as possible addressing all aspects and environments of American slaves; what was a slave’s daily life like? What was the impact of slavery on the South? Focus should be on slavery in general not Douglass (don’t ignore Douglass, just focus on slavery). One approach would be to read the book and write your paper as if you were explaining slavery to a friend who knows nothing about slavery. Personal analysis is expected, not a summary of book. Quality of writing will be a factor in determining grade.
