A History of the Underground Railroad

Here is the presentation document that I used for my wonderful talk to the fourth grade class reading The Last Safe House: A Story of the Underground Railroad. Their great questions made for a great dialogue. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1b6NcrTJYnPh50URaTh9-8LCz3ni_LHi86jSPS7KyDgM/edit?usp=sharing

Here’s a Underground Railroad of the presentation.

About Bill Sullivan

I am an English teacher working with great students at Suffield Academy. I also teach seniors in various project-based learning environments. Some of the #PBL topics included global issues, such as Pandemics, Climate Change, and Water; more recently I have asked students to research and identify topics important to our school community and their generation. We curate these topics with a #StudentCenteredPBL. For the past eleven years, I also created a driving question for a class to research a local history mystery and present their findings in a community program partnering with our local historical society. These topics encompass researching the lives of enslaved individuals who were contributors to the foundation of our community.
