A
NOBLE
 LIFE
BY
DAVID A. ADLER

HISTORY CAN SOMETIMES APPEAR BORING ESPECIALLY IN HIGH SCHOOL! THE DATES AND THE FACTS ARE FOREVER UNFOLDING BEFORE YOUR EYES, BUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IT'S PRESENTED IN A WAY THAT TRANSITIONS YOUR EMOTIONS PER ERA??????

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU HAVE A GREAT FEEL OF THE HISTORY WITHOUT EVEN FEELING LIKE YOU WERE FORCED TO LEARN! ADLER MAKES (A NOBLE LIFE), A SMOOTH & EDUCATIONAL JOURNEY ABOUT THE ABOLITIONIST (www.loc.gov/exhibits/african/afam005.html) FREDERICK DOUGLASS.

I have been reading fiction for a very long time and so I was a bit thrown off that some of Adler comments on the upbringing of Frederick Douglass was omitted. But then I quickly remembered the purpose of this book. It has to be a book that presents information in an educational form so that young adult readers can comprehend. As an adult you may look for further guidance from the author concerning the particulars of Douglass escape and how he learned how to educate himself. On the other hand, for a young teen it's a great start on sparking the mind and leaving enough insight that could possibly increase the awareness of nonfiction and history!

THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE BOOK IS LEARNING HOW A SLAVE BECAME FREE THROUGH CONSISTENT PURSUIT. AS A READER, YOU WILL VIEW LIFE AS A SLAVE (www.antislavery.org/english/what_we_do/our_history.aspx) and how he managed to succumb.  In addition to learning about Frederick's contribution in the Civil Rights movement. (www.pbs.org/blackpress/news_bios/douglass.html)

WHERE WAS FREDERICK DOUGLASS BORN?
WHO WERE HIS PARENTS?
HOW LONG DID FREDERICK REMAIN A SLAVE?
WHAT ARE SOME OF HIS BELIEFS?
DO THEY STILL IMPACT OUR WORLD TODAY?

IF THESE ARE QUESTIONS YOU WANT ANSWERED, PLEASE PICK UP THIS BOOK IT'S GREAT FOR ANY LITERATURE CLASS OR HIGH SCHOOL LIBRARY.
STUDENT'S WILL BE ABLE TO EXPLORE THE SIGNIFICANCE OF DOUGLASS CONTRIBUTION TO FREEDOM FOR AFRICAN AMERICANS AS WELL AS EQUAL OPPORTUNITY! (http://www.eeoc.gov/http://www.eeoc.gov/)

Fredrick Douglas is one of my all-time heroes. His life and words should be studied by all American teens. Please read his 4th of July Speech. It is a literary masterpiece-in my opinion.
