The possible discussion questions (section II) will help you prepare for in-class discussions. Also, use them to formulate questions to ask of your professor, teaching assistant, or teacher.
There is also a section on the history of slavery in the U.S. up to 1845 (section III) when Douglass publishes his narrative.

Always include some historical material whenever you write about historical topics.
