Tadeusz Kosciuszko was a Polish expatriate who assisted the Continental Army in many ways during the American Revolutionary War. During his time with the Continental Army his aide de camp was Agrippa Hull, a free-born African-American man. In his will, he left all of his American assets to Thomas Jefferson to use “in purchasing negroes from among his own as [well as] any others,” “giving them liberty in my name,” and “giving them an education in trades and otherwise.” (NOTE: there will be more items added to the curriculum soon; we just couldn't wait to get this one to you!)
Standards & Frameworks
These documents map the activites in this module to numerous national and state standards and frameworks.
These activities ask students to (1) generate their own questions and plan larger inquiries into the historical record regarding the stories presented in the video, and then (2) find, evaluate, and interpret historical documents to develop a research claim.
These activities extend the themes of the story presented in the episode to other events and into the future. These resources and activities help students see how we can use an understanding of the past to make sense of more recent events and imagine a different future.
