Tracing Freedom

During our reading of Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass thus far, we have discussed not only the horror of slavery, but also the hope of freedom. However, even today, forms of slavery are still in existence.

Today, in your groups, your mission is to look at the scope of slavery in our world--from its origins to its current practice. Use this website, Free the Slaves, to learn about this long history: 

After you explore the website with your group, work together to create a Teaching Poster that includes the following on the large piece of paper given you:

-- At least 5 dates from the website timeline

--At least four key people / groups / countries from the website timeline

--A Statement of why you think slavery has existed for so long

--Your Ideas about how to stop it

You can represent these four requirements in any way you see fit; you can use pictures, colors, words, quotes, connections, magazines, scissors, paste, anything else you deem helpful. Also, use your notes from the documentary AND quotes from the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass as well to help you include the information above!

We will have the iPads today only (Wednesday). But you will have all of our class period on Thursday to finish your Teaching Posters.

Challenge yourself and your team to create a Teaching Poster that will truly teach and help others to learn and to take action.

I can't wait to see what you create!!!
