This unit provides a wide-ranging overview of racial slavery in the Americas and the opportunity for students to consider how the past shapes the present.
Teaching About Slavery in the U.S. and World History Classroom
Are you planning to teaching about the slave trade, abolition, or the legacies of the slave trade? Or do you have a world history class that covers the Haitian Revolution or slavery in Brazil or Cuba? Do your students think about slavery as only occurring in the United States? Join us to explore the wide-ranging curriculum unit, Racial Slavery in the Americas: Resistance, Freedom, and Legacies, which is a perfect fit for any U.S. or world history course. We’ll discuss ways that lessons in the unit can build mapping skills, art and data analysis skills, and collaborative thinking in your students. Culminating activities to choose from cover reparative justice, monuments and historical memory, and creating memorials to commemorate racial slavery.
Participants will receive a one-year Digital Editions license for the Racial Slavery in the Americas unit. As of July 1, this unit will no longer be free in Digital Editions, so don’t miss your chance to get it for free here!
All are welcome to attend. This webinar is most appropriate for any educator who will be teaching about the history of the Atlantic World slavery and its legacies today. It is also relevant for teachers looking for new lessons, readings, and videos to supplement or enhance their teaching.
