This outstanding resource has been designed to help students studying the ‘Middle Passage’ as part of the transatlantic slave trade. The resource can easily be adapted for display purposes but it is designed to be used as a collaborative source investigation. It can also be used as a market place activity.
This beautifully illustrated resource is a must have for anyone teaching this topic. The tasks and activities have been written to appeal to the full spectrum of ability and have been set up around the market place activity where the key slides in the PP are printed off and either pinned on the classroom walls or set out on the tables so that students move around and fill in their information on the summary sheet. Alternatively, the sources are supplied in a booklet format so that each table can investigate a heading before sharing what they have learnt with other groups and the rest of the class. This is a very proactive lesson designed to get students up, moving around, sharing and working collaboratively. I have provided additional differentiation by ‘ragging’ or grading the difficulty of the sources so that the learners can chose their level of challenge.
When you purchase this resource you will receive a 18 slide presentation, which includes a snowballing starter, information slides for the market place activity and a plenary. The sources for the market place activity looks at the treatment of slaves and their conditions onboard the slave ship. I have also included a few links to relevant clips on the internet that have been carefully selected. In addition to the PP you will also be able to download a source booklet, a lesson plan and a source summary sheet.
The aims and objectives for these resources are:
Theme: The Transatlantic Slave Trade

Understand: How were slaves treated during the ‘Middle Passage’?
Skills: Enquiry, Source Analysis and Team Work
