• Read Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave.  

    We'll discuss the book, introduce annotations and literary devices, review CDC writing structure, and have our first grades (major and minor) based on Douglass's autobiography.

    You need a copy of this book--this is the only book we'll read that do not have class copies.  I recommend getting an old copy on Amazon since you'll highlight and annotate the pages.

    Expect weekly vocabulary, quick-writes, paragraph writing, reading tests, and an in-class essay on the 2nd Friday of the semester.

    If you have ordered your book already (but you're still waiting on it to arrive), use this link to the online full text.  Make sure you have read all the chapters (Chapter I-XI) before the first day of class.  Link to full text here:  https://docsouth.unc.edu/neh/douglass/douglass.html
