Slavery: The Middle Passage Experience.

Slavery: The Middle Passage Experience.

To link with my previous lesson ('An introduction to Slavery), this lesson starts with an autonomously moving spotlight over a picture (of raw cotton) to hook pupils into the lesson and link to one of the causes of slavery. Pupils begin the lesson through listening to a description of the middle passage to help introduce the lessons theme. Pupils then write an inquiry question they would like answered by the end of the lesson. Main Task: Depending on your class the main task for this lesson could take many forms, some suggestions are: Pupils could work in teams and study evidence (12 pieces of evidence included) around the room to create a fact file on the experience of the middle passage on A1 paper (Prize for best one). Or pupils could work independently recording what they have learnt from the evidence in their books. A video clip from the show 'Roots' can then be shown (embedded) to help consolidate the tasks learning. Pupils will then have the knowledge they will need to answer their enquiry question and an exam style question at the end of the lesson which the teacher can then use to assess progress. Higher and Middle / lower ability version of sources included, with a peep sheet to prompt less able and a challenge sheet for more able. + Lesson Plan Included - Many Thanks.
