Students trace the development of the American colonial world and one of the greatest wealth-producing colonies in world history. They consider the groups involved in the conflict and reflect on the legacies of one of the most successful revolts of enslaved people in history.
Teaching about the Haitian Revolution’s Role in World History
The Haitian Revolution’s crucial role in the history of the Americas and the abolishment of racial slavery is often overlooked in traditional textbooks.
Join the Choices Program and the National Council for History Education (NCHE) as we walk through the readings, lessons, and videos found in the Choices Program’s curriculum The Haitian Revolution (updated edition published in September 2018), which explores the causes, effects, and legacies of the revolution. We’ll also examine Haiti-related lessons from the Choices unit Racial Slavery in the Americas: Resistance, Freedom, and Legacies (provided).Co-sponsored by NCHE
This is a free webinar.
This workshop is open to all, but is most appropriate for world history teachers or any educators addressing slavery and its legacies in the classroom.
