Part 1: From Frederick Douglass’ “Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave,” what pro-slavery arguments does Douglass refer to or hint at in his narrative? How does he counter the various pro-slavery arguments? Provide quotes and cites to support your assertions.
Part 2: What themes (messages, lessons, ideas, or concepts) or motifs (recurrent thematic elements in the work) did you notice within Douglass’ narrative? What do you consider to be the key passages in the narrative? Why are these passages so significant?
Part 3: Please take a moment to reflect on this course, the experience, the reading, and whatever else you might think is interesting or relevant and worth sharing. If you are choosing the reflective option for the final project, please be sure this forum post differs somewhat from the reflective final project.
Your initial discussion should be at least 200 words. It must include MLA citations – both in-text and an end citation. Please also respond to a minimum of two of your classmates’ initial posts and bring together pieces of the discussion and take those ideas further. These responses should be at least 150 words.
As you may know from the attached rubric, students are expected to post on three separate days each week for average credit. During the week, read the messages posted by your instructor and classmates and join the discussion. Your instructor may ask questions, provide explanations, and include links to other resources.
To earn a higher grade on each week’s discussion, students are expected to post more frequently. To sum up: posting three times in a week will earn a grade of a C. Four posts of high quality according to the rubric will earn a B, and five high quality posts according to the rubric earn an A. Again, please check the rubric for details on this.
Remember, the Forums are our place for classroom discussion.
