It can provide a framework for three periods of European influence (Portuguese, Dutch, British) in the operation of trade from the Asian area and the markets of Europe. Beyond this framework this unit could be used to link with other areas of study - such as "The British in India"; "The Dutch in the East Indies" (present day Indonesia); "The plantations systems in Ceylon" : "The ancient kingdoms of Ceylon" ; "The endangered Asian elephants of Sri Lanka". Take your students through the defensive walls of Fort Galle. Discover via photographs the imprints of history and understand why this is a unique place.

Britain’s transatlantic slave trade: The Triangular Trade and the capture of slaves

Britain’s transatlantic slave trade: The Triangular Trade and the capture of slaves

This lesson is split into two parts; the first part explains the triangular trade and the various goods and transactions that occurred in the slave trade. Students are required to find this out through documentary and video evidence before plotting it on a table. A mini plenary checks their understanding and uses a ‘what if’ question to challenge their thinking. The second part looks at the story of Olaudah Equiano and how his life was before and after he was captured. However the students are challenged to question his version of events and how there is conflicting evidence in his account. The final part of the lesson analyses how the slaves were captured by whom, prioritising which were the most common forms of capture and using sources of evidence to extract further information. The lesson comes complete with suggested teaching strategies.
