THE NARRATIVE OF THE LIFE OF FREDERICK DOUGLASS: EXCERPT FROM CHAPTER 1
Homework for Tuesday week 47:
Watch the film:
1. You are a journalist that secretly meets one of the slaves that we have read about. You are now able to write a newspaper article and report to the world what has happened to the person you have met.
You make an "interview" with the person and when you write your article you include quotations from the interview. You want your article to be a clickbait so think carefully about your headline!
You need to plan your text before you start writing. Follow the instructions in the video. You don't need to write the whole text at home. Only plan it.
You will write when we see each other on Tuesday.
