Respond to one of the following prompts in a 750-word essay. Your answer should include direct references to the text, cited using Chicago-style footnotes.

At the end of the essay, tell me the word count and put that in bold. Remember that you’re required to have an argumentative thesis and adhere to proper English grammar. To turn in the essay, upload a file through Turnitin.
1) Compare the narrative style of Frederick Douglass’ autobiography with that of Benjamin Franklin. Do they write for the same reason? How does their ultimate goal shape their narrative style?
2) For so much of this course, we’ve discussed competing notions of freedom in early America. How does Douglass define freedom? How does he achieve freedom?
3) Does this book tell us as much about general life in the nineteenth-century South as it does about Douglass’ own life? Think like a historian: how might we use Douglass’ book to learn about antebellum society more broadly?
4) Douglass describes several poignant turning points in his life. What, in your opinion, are the three most formative episodes in his personal evolution?
5) How does Douglass discuss the environment in his autobiography? What role does the natural world play in his narrative?
Each author seems to have scriptural evidence to support their theory on this controversial and highly debatable topic. But, there was another point of agreeableness among them: some of the characteristics were which represent man/woman being formed in the image of God. To name a few, we are creators, God created the heavens and the earth, we’re relational, God is relational, we are communicators, God is a communicator, we are spiritual beings as God is a Spirit, and we are intellectual beings who reasons, God is intelligent and reasons too. When we fully grasp what it means to bear God’s image, we are amazingly struck with the boundless, grandeur of our possibilities and the tragedy of our unrealized potential! To be fully human is to completely reflect God’s image. Furthermore, though all humans possess these godlike capacities, each of us has the potential to express them uniquely because God’s image has been imprinted peculiarly on each of us. (7) In God’s infinite creativity there are no duplications. Everybody is an original and is created in the image of God, which according to Orthodox Christians can never be lost.
