Monday, Feb. 2: Explain why the founding fathers didn’t offer freedom to people of African descent during the Age of Reason.

Tuesday, Feb. 3: Copy three sentences that demonstrate realism in The Red Badge of Courage.

Wednesday, Feb. 4: If you were a Native American, would you fight for the North or the South during the American Civil War? Explain why.

Thursday, Feb. 5: Write sentences describing everything you can remember from “Aboard a Slave Ship 1829,” “The Pit and the Pendulum,” “A Man’s Body at Auction,” and “The Declaration of Independence.”



Monday, Feb. 2 – 5: This week, during class, we’ll finish reading The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane. Remember that the audiobook is available on YouTube (see link) for free.
