4/6/2016 Slavery Lessons due by the end of the day
by Michael Winship - Tuesday, 29 March 2016, 10:27 AM
 

Near the beginning of the year, the students worked through several lessons over the topic of slavery in Colonial America. Before beginning our unit over the Civil War, they will be revisiting the topic beginning with the unintentional rebirth of slavery with the invention of the cotton gin and take a look at the faces of slavery in the modern world. They will be required to complete 4 of the 5 lessons available to them, and can complete the fifth one as extra credit. These will be due by the end of the day on April 6th (but by the end of the day on the 8th for Challenge, who are continuing their prep work and engaging in a mock trial over the Fugitive Slave Law).
