Lesson seeds are ideas that can be used to build a lesson aligned to the CCSS. Lesson seeds are not meant to be all-inclusive, nor are they substitutes for instruction. When developing lessons from these seeds,
teachers must consider the needs of all learners. It is also important to build checkpoints into the lessons where appropriate formative assessment will inform a teachers instructional pacing and delivery.
Excerpts from the following texts: Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass; Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions, Seneca Falls Convention, 1848; as well as Abigail Adams' "Letter to John Adams"
