“Harriet's feet bleed and her gut churns. Under the stars, she draws near to God. Lord, don't let nobody turn me 'round; I'd rather die than be a slave.“

I would use this book in my classroom because the story is very empowering and beautiful but I would have to be careful because it seems to be a religious book and I wouldn't want to offend or push a different idea or belief to my students.

Moses: When Harriet Tubman Led Her People to Freedom written by Carole Boston Weatherford. Tells the fictional story of Harriet Tubman's first trip to freedom, using her belief in the Lord and how then the Lord called upon her to free other slaves using the Underground Railroad. The details in this story are historically accurate, including the names and dates/places but is told in an authentic way.

I wouldn‘t read this book in a classroom only because of the amount of references to god. Not everyone is Christian and it wouldn‘t be right to read such a deeply religious book like this to a classroom.

This book did a really good job teaching the struggles Harriet Tubman had gone through. She was deeply religious and used god to help her get to freedom. At the end of the book, there is an author‘s note that explains the full life of Harriet Tubman. She was a rebel and should be relevant in history forever.

Throughout the book, Harriet Tubman takes place mostly as a conversation between her and God. I liked how the book explains slavery and also contains information about Harriet.

This book is very poetic and is a roaring tribute to Harriet Tubman's strength, humility, and devotion. She made trips into the South freeing about three-hundred people and never lost a person on a trip. I think this book has more religious themes than historical themes.

“I am your child Lord: yet master owns me, drives me like a mule. Now he means to sell me south in chains to work cotton, rice, indigo, or sugarcane, never to see my family again.”

I would love to use this book as a history lesson for my students. It would be a great introduction to a lesson slavery and what it was like for people in the south during these times

Moses- published in 2006 is a historical fiction book based on the story of Harriet Tubman who helped rescue slaves from the south. It was a very heartfelt book about what it was like for slaves and how much they had to go through to be able to have a life they deserved. The images were beautiful and made it seem almost as I was there with them

I would use this book inside my classroom to show my students how God works in mysterious ways and to always keep your faith. This book is inspiring because it is about a young woman who put her trust in God to free her from slavery and her people. The illustrations are amazing and perfectly fits the culture. The theme is to never give up and put trust in God and don't give up on your faith.

This is a historical fiction book. It is about Harriet Tubman and how God speaks to her to flee from slavery. She leaves behind her husband and children and brings nothing with her except her faith. Along her journey, she travels through the scary woods and sleeps alone; but she was never really alone because she had God. This is an inspiring book of the Underground Railroad. This book tells a great story of a true woman. It gives an author's note

#LetsTravelJuly Day 16: The book begins with a Foreword that details brief snapshots of information about what slavery means and the entire historical context from which the book is drawn. There was also mention of the #Underground Railroad – a network of kind-hearted, courageous beings who helped 40,000 – 100,000 slaves escape and find their freedom – and Harriet Tubman was at the center of this community.

I have always loved reading biographies and learning about real people and their impact to society, and this book surely does not disappoint! Kadir Nelson, alongside author Carole B Weatherford pay a beautiful tribute to Harriet Tubman in this Caldecott winning PB. I would love to integrate this book through a social studies unit, or even as an independent AS. #LAE3414sp19

hkeiger An AS for this specific book would be an obvious lesson, being that it is about the great Harriet Tubman! However, I would definitely like my students to go more extensive in their study about Harriet Tubman. This Teacher‘s Guide includes all different types of lessons for students & I really like the music lesson. 7mo
hkeiger All of the lessons included are great, but the music is something I have never thought of doing. Researching different songs and spirituals that were popular during this time period will help students connect to that time period and relate. It would get students involved in a different way than just normal research. https://www.teachingbooks.net/media/pdf/DisneyHyperion/Moses.pdf (UDL 1.2, ESOL 17) 7mo
DrSpalding Wouldn‘t this be a wonderful read aloud along with the readers theater that Audrey created! 7mo

Although I loved the story, I won‘t be able to teach it in a public school setting since it has the voice of God talking. It has a really great message of perseverance and hope, and would be great at a Catholic or Christian school, and for any early childhood classroom.

This is a nonfiction book with beautiful illustrations and a personal, first-hand feel at what Harriet Tubman went through for freedom. The book was centered around her conversations with God as the plot progressed and as she encountered struggles. I thought it was a really cool take on a story that many people already know.

Watched this short film with my 12 year old to prepare for our Agape Homeschool class about Torchlighters. Then we read this book. We were both amazed to learn that Harriet Tubman rescued her brothers & parents less than 10 years after she escaped herself.

There are so many books on my shelf that I am longing to read, instead I have to work myself through the Moses theater play I‘m writing my Master Thesis about. I‘m having a presentation about my progress on the thesis tomorrow and still need to read a few more pages of this. Even though it is super interesting, at this very moment I would prefer my other books...

Moses: When Harriet Tubman Led Her People to Freedom written by Carole Boston Weatherford and illustrated by Kadir Nelson is an award-winning B picture book. The book has won both the Caldecott and Coretta Scott King award and I would definitely use this story in a LC because I believe it would provide a great discussion. #UCFLAE3414F17

jasminep This link https://www.teachingbooks.net/media/pdf/DisneyHyperion/Moses.pdf is to a pdf of a discussion guide with pre-reading questions and projects that involve math, art, music, and even science. The UDL I would use is 3.1 which is activate or supply background knowledge, because knowing about the underground railroad is definitely important when talking about Harriet Tubman. 2y
jasminep I would use ESOL strategy 36 in my LC which is to ask numerous questions which require higher level thinking responses. 2y

I was inspired to read this Caldecott winner biography from when someone did their Book Boost on it. I think the pictures in it are amazing and I would use this book along with story telling and a history lesson. I think that this would be a unique way to read the book. I would use this lesson plan as a guideline http://citadel.sjfc.edu/students/. This book is about her life of Harriet Tubman and how she helped her people to freedom!

MakennaK I would use UDL 3.1, activate or supply background knowledge, because this book will go along with a history lesson and students will need to know information on slavery. I will use EDL 4, link lesson topic to students' prior knowledge, for the same reason as stated above. 2y
JordanD Wow- it's obvious why this is a Caldecott winner- the picture is so vivid and realistic! It sounds like a compelling story and I like your strategies of activating background knowledge- this would be a great book to get kids interested in a lesson. When I clicked the link It said there was an error- is there something else I need to do to access the lesson plan? 2y
