Language Arts Unit - Elijah of Buxton

by Kim A. Howe, M.S., Kelly Kirk

Follow the adventures of Elijah Freeman — a young African-American boy born free in Canada — as he travels to the United States in pursuit of a thief. Witness Elijah's first encounters with the horror of slavery and his growing understanding of and appreciation for his own freedom. During the process of reading this book, you will also learn the names and definitions of important literary terms, such as tone, metaphor, conflict, and climax. These will help you identify the basic elements of narratives necessary to interpret, critique, and respond to literature.

For the final project in this unit, you will have the opportunity to create your own personal, first-person narrative using the literary techniques you have just learned.

This package includes free online curriculum access for 18 months.
