- Check your class by number. If you’re in period 1, click on the big 1, etc.
- Find your first name and your assigned abolitionist.
- Then click on the post with the “List of Abolitionists”. Some of you have a link to an article to read.
- To do an internet search for your assigned abolitionist, try putting the person’s name in quotation marks. Example “Lucretia Mott”. Otherwise, you may get anyone named Lucretia. Some people , like Lucretia Mott, are also famous for being a women’s rights activist and a suffragette. You want to focus on their work with abolition or anti-slavery so try something like “Lucretia Mott” and “abolitionist” for a search.
- You need to take a page of notes. Your notes are for you to do two things. First, you need to make a timeline for your person with ten facts. Your timeline needs to include your abolitionist’s anti-slavery work but can include other facts about their lives.
- Second, next week, you need to write a paragraph about your person in your upcoming paper about the Anti-Slavery Movement before the U.S. Civil War. You need enough notes to cover those two tasks.
