Description

In this ReadWriteThink lesson, students practice writing effective summaries using biographies. They first read selections from "Enemies of Slavery" by David Adler. They then work in a "jigsaw" format in which they become the "expert" on a specific person and then join up with other "experts" to learn about other biographies. Afterwards, students use the Bio-Cube tool to record information about their assigned person and then display them in an Enemies of Slavery mobile. Several pieces of literature appropriate for use with this lesson are suggested. Less
