Cultural Literacy: Emancipation Proclamation

This Cultural Literacy worksheet on the Emancipation Proclamation does a very nice job of including the fundamental political cynicism behind the document as a political gesture and an act of liberation. In so doing (and you will see that there is plenty of room to expand this worksheet, which you can easily do because, like just about everything else published on Mark’s Text Terminal, it is in Microsoft Word), it opens a lot of room to ask big questions about the document itself, as well as others like it.

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.
