What was daily life like for slaves on a plantation? DBQ full lesson

What was daily life like for slaves on a plantation? DBQ full lesson

This lesson focuses on the primary evidence from the time to describe and explain what life was like for slaves on American plantations in the 19th century. The lesson begins with a desk jigsaw that the students must put together and attempt to work out the topic of the lesson. They then use the source material as a DBQ to identify, describe, explain and analyse. This works well to develop their historical skills. The lesson resources are differentiated by level of activity that match the respective lesson objectives and by the amount of resources they must use for the DBQ. You can use the same with the whole class or if you have a very widely varied ability level you can give out the relevant sheets to match each student. The top ability are encouraged throughout to consider a sources reliability based on the origin, nature and purpose. However, I think all students can begin to do this and evaluate the sources in front of them. Lesson contains: 1. Simple lesson plan 2. A 20 slide animated powerpoint with notes for teacher direction where needed. 3. 3 differentiated source DBQs with differentiated tasks. Thank you for looking
