For a shorter activity, consider using single storyboard squares to have students depict Douglass’s important character traits. Students will identify a character quality that stands out to them and depict a scene through which Douglass exhibits this quality. Students can explain their reasoning in a text box below the image, or can include an accompanying quotation from the narrative.
For Douglass, the hardest part about running away is leaving behind his close friends in Baltimore. The thought of being separated from them almost makes him stay behind.
