Optional Assignment: Personal Sacrifice

  1. This assignment can be done in the classroom or as a homework assignment.
  2. Have your students write a 1-2 page essay describing ideals in their world that they feel are so important they would be willing to make the kinds of sacrifices that Judith Frieze and other Freedom Riders made (i.e. getting arrested, temporary loss of freedom to come and go as they please, or doing with less food, money, luxuries.)
  3. When the essays are done, you may want to have a few students read theirs out loud or post some on a bulletin board in your classroom or a school corridor.
