Unspoken: A Story from the Underground Railroad

Our literature unit will make a nice addition to your Black History Month curriculum.

This is a 13 page literature unit for the book "Unspoken: A Story of the Underground Railroad" by Henry Cole. It includes essay questions on prediction, interpretation, and connection. It also includes a character bubble activity, a creative writing exercise with vocabulary words, and a "Thank You Letter" activity. It also includes bonus Bible verses related to the subject.

Book summary: A young girl's courage is tested in this haunting, wordless story. When a farm girl discovers a runaway slave hiding in the barn, she is at once startled and frightened. But the stranger's fearful eyes weigh upon her conscience, and she must make a difficult choice. Will she have the courage to help him? Unspoken gifts of humanity unite the girl and the runaway as they each face a journey: one following the North Star, the other following her heart. Henry Cole's unusual and original rendering of the Underground Railroad speaks directly to our deepest sense of compassion.
