Cultural Literacy: The Compromise of 1850

Here’s a Cultural Literacy worksheet on the Compromise of 1850, which of course was a debate about how much further the commodification of persons of African descent in the burgeoning United States in the middle of the nineteenth century. This worksheet is a full page–longer than most of these exercises I’ve drafted, so it is perhaps useful for independent practice work.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
